I was underwhelmed by this story. I found the constant mention of 'my husband' to be irritating, unnecessary and out of place... I hardly think a senior police officer would be constantly flaunting his gay relationship. Maybe AC is trying to get the gay clientele onside but I didn't see the point of it.. or the necessity. And the story didn't grab me. I devoured Shetland books and Vera but I won't be holding my breath for the next instalment in this series. Sorry Ms Cleeves but you have disappointed me.
