Luther and Jenny dispose of Kent's body and give Baba cause to believe that he was actually killed by her other henchman Frank. To ensure that there will be no reprisals he threatens her with the ultimate weapon of revenge - Alice. Meanwhile the second dice man murders four people on the subway and Luther deduces that the two killers are twins, competing to see who can claim the most victims. With this in mind he plays on the vanity of his prisoner, Robert Millberry, to help him net his brother Nick, leading Luther into a showdown with Nick Milberry. Written by don @ minifie-1

Luther Season 2 Review
16 October 2020 | by katyayan-12892See all my reviews

Review By Kamal K

Season 2 of Luther is shorter, a little clumsier, but gorgeously dark. The cast is as good as ever and there are some seriously fantastic cases. But I found myself wanting more screentime for Ruth Wilson.
