Luther Season 3 Episode 1 Review
B Van Heusen
His outfit is the same, his mood is no better, and London is still seemingly full of twisted sociopaths. However, the task of hunting down Britain’s sickest serial killers may soon be passed onto someone else as the noose seems to be tightening around Luther’s neck.
Season three began simply enough with Luther (Idris Elba) and Ripley (Warren Brown) wrapping up a bread and butter case. However, while Schenk (Dermot Crowley) seems to have grown to love Luther, his old nemesis DCI Erin Gray (Nikki Amuka-Bird) still dreams about his downfall. Along with DSU George Stark (David O’Hara) she is hoping to expose him as a dirty cop. Ripley reluctantly agreed to get involved in the investigation but Luther didn’t exactly help his case when he dangled a man off a sky-rise and sabotaged a murder investigation. At this point, you’re kind of thinking that they are going to have to nail this guy at some point right? Then again, he has survived to this point so who knows how season 3 will play out.
