I had watched the series last year and was sorry to see it go off the air. I love good detective stories and this one is well acted with Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter). I found this DVD in the Acorn catalog and realize that there were two more shows I had not seen. It is a continuing story so don't miss a one. I would give this a 5 star rating.

This series is outstanding, I really hope they do more episodes!!! I am a longstanding mystery buff and lover of British TV. This is one of the best written and acted series I have EVER seen. Good twisty plots and great very well acted, likeable characters. Not stylized, very realistically dramatized. Amazing...Period. This and Wallander are some of my favorite newer series, if that helps in knowing my taste.

This is absolutely wonderful!
