Meet Detective Chief Inspector John Luther.
He's a murder detective.
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.
