But the pregnant woman gimmick feels a bit Fargo – or like the brilliant Comic Strip cop show spoof Detectives on the Edge of a Nervous Breakdown, where every detective cliché was present and correct! The detection is hit or miss—mostly miss—but Americans who think the bleak world George Pelecanos brings to life is limited to the nation’s capital will find Billingham’s atmospheric maze of London byways just as sprawling and squiggling with desperate cops and robbers. Another sweltering month in Charlotte, another boatload of mysteries past and present for overworked, overstressed forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. The four hour-long episodes will see Ripper Street and Twilight star MyAnna Buring, 37, take on the role of Detective Inspector Helen Weeks with Shameless actor Ben Batt playing her partner and fellow Detective Inspector Paul Hopwood.

Ashley Walters, Ben Batt and Tim McInnerny co-star in this police procedural that’s not exactly groundbreaking, but offers up some interesting themes and is anchored by a realistic and impressive performance from Buring. We see their everyday life, how they interact with each other, who their friends are and who they don't know.And now there’s a question mark over who the father of her unborn child is – something which looks like it will tear Helen and Paul apart. Except the Lewisham of this book is not quite the Lewisham I know, Here it’s home to nothing but gangs of drug dealers and juvenile thugs, where violence is only ever seconds away from hitting the streets.

I’ve always enjoyed the way that Mark Billingham portrays the dark underbelly of London streetlife and this thrilling novel is another great example. Mark Billingham’s high standards for hard-boiled novels that mirror society rise several notches as he again proves himself one of the most exciting British authors working the crime fiction beat. Can’t help wondering how the usually excellent Mark Billingham allowed this travesty of his book ever get to the screen – especially as he is credited with involvement in the series.Meanwhile, a novice gang member finds himself in over his head after his initiation, and unknowingly connected to Helen. We’ve seen female badasses on the small screen plenty of times in the past – particularly in crime dramas – but there’s something about the unique and realistic portrayal of a flawed but resilient and iron-willed woman here that really stands out. It was mentioned in the description on the back, and in three blurbs on the front and back cover alone. Paul is hit by a Car when he is out drinking with his friend, It looks like it was a freak accident involving a Woman in one car and some would be young Black Gangsters in the other car.
