First 23-year old likable schoolteacher Zoe Haratounian, who beats off a thief and gets declared a local heroine by the press, gets scary anonymous letters, but because she runs off from the police station when the desk officer cheerfully calls her 'our poster girl' to a colleague when recognizing her on a press cutting, it takes days before the police can even send over PC Andrew Stadden, a detective in training.

I remember this cheering up some dark Sunday nights a few years back. I expected nothing much, but in return found it entertaining, engaging and surprising, and I ended up in a bleak, dark mood; just right for returning to another working week. The acting was brilliant and realistic,the plot was credible: I totally recommend this mini-series. One surprise is that I have just found out it was from a book written by Nicci French, an author recommended to me by my Dutch husband. I have just found a whole row of her books on his bookshelf; all of which have been translated into Dutch. I really do have to now buy and read the English versions.
