Storyline

Emily Hammond is killed in her flat by a fetishist who puts makeup and a wig on her corpse, the slaying recalling the murders thirty years earlier by a serial killer, the Shoreditch Creeper, who had connections with Emily's house. At the same time Ripley is introduced by embittered Erin Gray to creepy superintendent Stark, back from retirement, anxious to nail Luther for killing people who eluded justice and taking the law into his own hands. Stark and Gray put a wire on Ripley as he and Luther investigate the apparently ritual murder of obscene Internet troll Jared Cass. Prime suspect is Ken Barnaby, who was plagued by Cass with taunts over his dead daughter but Luther feels sorry for him, warning him of likely arrest which spurs Ken to take extreme action. Luther finds romance with Mary Day after they literally bump into each other in a traffic prang but the killer strikes again, murdering Dani Lane, who was Emily's babysitter in the 1980s, and her husband.

Quotes

DSU George Stark: DCI Luther will be taking on a case of a waste of semen called Jared Cass.
DS Justin Ripley: It was you. You had him assigned to the Jared Cass murder.
DSU George Stark: I want to know exactly how he handles that investigation. And I mean every move by move, breath by breath. If he breaks the law, I want his head on a stick.

At the end of S2 Erin Grey was a Detective Sergeant with a rightful concern about Detective Chief Inspector John Luther.

At the start of S3 she has suddenly risen two ranks to DCI in charge in an investigation against him. Tortuous?
