Description: Lia Williams plays Detective Chief Inspector Greave in the return of Radio 4's gritty crime drama. Set in rural Norfolk, one of the lowest crime areas in the country.

1/5 DCI Greave leads a team investigating two potentially linked deaths.

2/5: DCI Greave leads a team investigating two potentially linked murders. Both victims had their heads shaved antemortem and Greave discovers a link to a case in London a couple of years ago: the Dead List murders.

3/5 DCI Greave leads a team investigating two potentially linked murders. Both victims had their heads shaved antemortem and Greave discovers a link to a case in London a couple of years ago: the Dead List murders. At each crime scene, she's found prayer cards depicting Christian martyrs whose deaths corresponds to the victims in her case.

4: Then she receives her own Dead List but the names on the list don't belong to the victims but to Christian martyrs in the first century. What's the connection?

5: She's connected all of the victims to a single crime committed eight years previously: the murder of a young Albanian woman at a Norfolk farm. But she's yet to uncover who is behind it all.

HAH - "You can't police all the people all the time" - great line.
