This is officially one of my new favorite shows.
Luther, played by Idris Alba John Luther is a Detective Chief Inspector working for the Serious Crime Unit in series 1, and the new Serious and Serial Crime Unit in series 2.
A dedicated copper, Luther is also a genius. He is obsessive, possessed, and sometimes dangerous in the violence of his fixations. But Luther has paid a heavy price for his dedication; he has never been able to prevent himself from being consumed by the darkness of the crimes with which he deals.
For Luther, the job always comes first. His dedication is a curse and a blessing for him and those close to him.
The new season is coming to BBC America on October 17th at 10/9c
