Luther: Coming Soon

The BBC have released a trailer for the upcoming series 2 of Luther, created by Neil Cross. The first series is available now on DVD and this second series is due to be released on DVD on 27 June.

There is also a book coming out in August, the first in a series of books featuring Luther:

Meet Detective Chief Inspector John Luther. He's a murder detective. A near-genius. He's brilliant; he's intense; he's instinctive. He's obsessional. He's dangerous. DCI John Luther has an extraordinary clearance rate. He commands outstanding loyalty from friends and colleagues. Nobody who ever stood at his side has a bad word to say about him. And yet there are rumours that DCI Luther is bad - not corrupt, not on the take, but tormented. Luther seethes with a hidden fury that at times he can barely control. Sometimes it sends him to the brink of madness, making him do things he shouldn't; things way beyond the limits of the law. Luther: The Calling, the first in a new series of novels featuring DCI John Luther, takes us into Luther's past and into his mind. It is the story of the case that tore his personal and professional relationships apart and propelled him over the precipice. Beyond fury, beyond vengeance. All the way to murder...

Was series 1 considered to be any good, in the end? I started to record it but deleted it unwatched (to make space!) in light of various synopses and reviews. I do like Idris Elba, though!

Maybe it's an acquired taste. I loved Luther - and since watching have read some Neil Cross books which I found scarily good. But then, as regards TV, I liked Zen which the BBC have pulled.

I've enjoyed Neil Cross's most recent two books - it was the TV series that attracted a lot of negative comment by UK reviewers.
