Wire in the Blood: Series 1, Part 1 - The Mermaids Singing

Clinical psychologist Dr. Tony Hill (Robson Green) is asked to help police track down the brutal killer of three men in Bradfield. Detective Inspector Carol Jordan (Hermione Norris) hopes his skill as a profiler will crack the case, but Tony's off-beat methods cause others to dismiss him. When a cop is killed, the pressure for results mounts. The police focus on the gay scene, while Tony is convinced the killer is sending a message on the body of his victim. Carol builds a strong relationship with Tony: she uses all her police skills to produce as much evidence as possible, and then Tony analyses every detail. He puts himself in the killers shoes, until he can almost sense the killings themselves. As Tony nears the solution, having discovered the ultimate profile of the killer they're pursuing, he becomes the unsuspecting target of the killer himself. From the best selling novels of prize winning author Val McDermid.
