Hudson Box Office (HBO) - Luther

Not your usual BBC police series. A self-destructive near-genius, DCI John Luther might just be as dangerous as the depraved criminals he hunts. Luther follows his own moral code as much as the rules of criminal law. But he quickly becomes locked in a lethal battle of wits with Alice, a beautiful, highly intelligent mass murderer, and his decision-making process becomes increasingly murky. Luther's lonely path pulls him towards the very edge of temptation.
Luther is played by Idris Elba who has been nominated for the Golden Globe Best Actor Award three times, winning once.
The library has the first season, consisting of six episodes.

Kevin O’Brien grew up on Chicago’s North Shore and studied Journalism at Marquette University in Milwaukee. He moved to Seattle in 1980. For seventeen years, before his thrillers landed him on The New York Times Bestseller list, Kevin O'Brien made his living as a railroad inspector and did all his writing at night. He began writing full time in 1997 and is hard at work on his 15th novel.
The library recently acquired his most recent novel Unspeakable.  Click here to visit his website and remember to use the Suggestion Book at the front desk if you would like the library to acquire more of his books.
