It was... okay. A tad too much convenient killing off of troublesome characters and there seemed to be a massive narrative leap where they somehow found the blokey in that abandoned mall (or did I miss something?)

I thought it was a bit weak myself. Luther being arrested was a real huh moment. Ok they explained it and it sort of made sense but it was based entirely on theory which they had no evidence for. Luther wanting Ripley dead actually made no sense given Ripley having told the internal affairs bloke to get lost. They knew Luther knew that as well as they knew he took the recorder.
I also did not like how bad guy found out where Luthers girl friend was from a message on Luthers phone. Given he found out where she was in the previous episode in exactly the same way. Bad guy also suddenly had no issues killing policemen.
@Tricky They found the bloke in the abandoned mall because they traced his phone. That did seem a bit easy.
Overall I think the writing was really weak in the last couple of episodes. The first two were much better.

Just watched the first episode of the second series last night and I'm loving the show so far. Idris Elba has serious screen presence.
Third will probably be the last serious though won't it, he's getting a bit too famous now

Just watched the last one. Really enjoyed it. It's really daft and OTT like an American show but that's why I like it.
I'm not sure what happened at the end with Mary, I assume he breaks up with her? Seemed like that.
I agree it was too easy killing off the copper who was investigating Luther. Bad writing that, it would have been far better to humiliate him with the camera footage and some other evidence. Still, a great show and I hope they make another series or a movie as has been mooted.

Movie in the works.
If you haven't watched this last season, don't click the link.
Damn, I hate prequels.

Very late to this as only just finished 1st series on Netflix and a couple into the 2nd. Quite like it, some are better than others. Missed it on terrestrial but will start to catch up now.
