Luther (series 1) * Neil Cross (2010)

Posted in crime, drama, series on by .

“Luther” is a BBC series. When I got it I thought it was a mini series of six episodes, but according to IMdB there are three series and the show is stil running. The main character is John Luther, a troubled detective whom we see having problems with his temper, his wife, his boss and colleagues and most of all, a murderer that he enounters in the first episode. In the meantime Luther tries to solve crimes, but the focus of the series quickly moves from the cases on his desk to Luther himself. However unsympathetic he his, Luther is stil the emphatisable main character, but perhaps this is more because of the people around him. “Luther” is an alright crime drama with some obligatory gruesome crimes. It is certainly not a masterpiece though.
