Shallow Grave [1998], 11 hours 19 mins
Blurb - Detective Inspector Bill Slider has always been keen on architecture - what Atherton calls his edifice complex - and the Old Rectory is the kind of house he would give anything to own. But the dead body of Jennifer Andrews, found in a hole on the terrace, rather spoils the view. It looks a straightforward case: Jennifer was a congenital flirt, and the hole was dug by her builder husband Eddie, who was violent and jealous. But questions remain unanswered. Why was Jennifer's body so unmarked? How did she reach her shallow grave unnoticed? And why would anyone want to be an estate agent?

why would anyone want to be an estate agent?
why indeed!

Solid series this.
