    When so much of the series depends on psychological nuance, the lurch into Hollywood action thriller confrontations is an outright admission of defeat. Sensationalism trumps subtlety once more. Both Luther and Idris Elba deserve so much more.

However, the final two episodes, although still feeling different from the first two seasons, are still great in their own right and save this season. Full Review »
