Luther (TV Series 2010– ) - IMDb

5 seasons of adventures of the stylish Idris Elba have high ratings in the lists of both serials in general, and criminal police detective shows.

That is to say this is not surprising. You would want to watch the inspector’s adventure in criminal (and) corporate London. That’s because three main needs of the genre are combined at once — the character’s charisma, a non-trivially detailed history and a combination of all seasons. The character from the first season can suddenly be important in the third.

To sum up, twenty existing episodes you will watch non-stop.

He is forced to work on solving a crime by a weird guy named Dirk Gentley (Samuel Barnett), a detective who believes that everything is connected…

In search of answers to dozens of questions, sometimes paradoxical, the heroes will face the police, FBI, military, assassins and soul-eaters, and travel to the future and past.
