The attack on Annie turns into a murder investigation and Banks is convinced Steve Richards was responsible as Annie had gone to meet his wife Tamsin. Tamsin herself admits that she spoke to Annie whom she saw as a comforter following her daughter's death but claims that she left her unharmed and alive. A man called Colvin is identified as the killer and, since he was once in rehab with Richards, Banks sees this as linking Richards to the murder. However when Banks loses it and assaults Richards he is taken off the case. Written by don @ minifie-1

A Sad Ending
15 January 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Annie is dead. She has been stabbed in the street. Of course, Banks is devastated. He had finally hooked up with her; she had decided to leave her husband. This causes Banks to go crazy. He figures the guy he has sought revenge on forever is behind her killing. He is utterly out of control, ignoring anything those around him can advise. Morton is now a DCI and he treats her like teenage. One more episode in this series.
