The Case of the Late Pig: Part 2
23 January 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Campion meets Mr Hayhoe, a man who snorts like a pig. A relation of Pig Harris who was buried in May. He claims to have important information.

Mr Hayhoe claims that the second man found dead with the geranium urn on his head, resembled Pig Harris and was also a relative.

Whippet keeps hanging about and acts like some kid of Mole.

Campion senses that the death of Pig Harris might be linked to an insurance scam, a scam where Pig Harris jilted his partners in crime.

However Campion places himself and Lugg in peril.

It was a nicely constructed mystery, not easy to work out the details although I can sense who the murderer was.

There is a look of disappointment in Campion's face when he finds out that his adventures has lead to people being paired up. Janet's crush on him remain short lived.

I just thought the first series of Campion never reached the heights. The pace was too leisurely although it had great production detail and art direction.
