Detective Inspector John River is haunted by visions of his recently murdered colleague, Detective Sergeant Jackie 'Stevie' Stevenson. He continues in his attempts to find her killer although excluded from the case on the grounds of his proximity to the events surrounding it. He pursues a potential suspect who falls to his death and is subsequently placed under increasing pressure from the media. Simultaneously, he faces demands from the mother of a missing teenager to find her daughter’s body.
I totally forgot to review this. This is not a show to miss. Right from the first three minutes it grabs you and just doesn't let go. Stellan Skarsgaard is, as always, superbly talented and needs to be for this very difficult role. I can't say anything or else it would be a spoiler. Everyone in this show is excellent, the plots are great, it shows off London, both the good and the bad and through it all 'River' captivates. I cannot wait for the second season. :)
