Review

I don’t think any of us would ever expect Neville (Ralf Little) to go fully native, but there are signs that he’s finally starting to embrace island life. Even a few episodes ago, the idea of him wearing short trousers would have seemed unthinkable. But that really is Nev showing off those milk-bottle legs following a shopping trip with Florence (Joséphine Jobert). Might he be trying to impress her? I’ll let you follow the clues as regards that little mystery…

As for the main case, well, it’s a substantial one that unfolds over two episodes and concludes tomorrow at 9pm. But at first, there doesn’t seem to be much that’s out of the ordinary, in that we have the murder of a concert pianist and a close-knit group of suspects who are all keeping secrets. However, bar owner Catherine (Elizabeth Bourgine) then turns out to also have a connection to the dead man. And by the end of part one, her daughter Camille (Sara Martins) has appeared on screen for the first time since 2015.

Summary

When renowned concert pianist Pasha Verdinikov is shot dead during an apparent burglary, Neville is quick to conclude that the scene was staged and Pasha was murdered. But the four people under suspicion - the victim's family and domestic workers - all have seemingly solid alibis. However, matters are complicated when the discovery of new evidence links the crime to a case from 20 years ago. First of a two-part story, starring Ralf Little and Josephine Jobert. Part two is tomorrow at 9pm.
