'Luther': Watch the newest trailer of the hold your breath scary good series

"You've never been tempted…to administer a bit of personal justice?" That's the burning question of the third installment of "Luther," and on Thursday, Aug. 29, BBC America released a new trailer teasing the detective's latest problems.

In the next installment of "Luther," Idris Elba's character has more problems than he needs as he struggles to cope with his own demons, the intense pressure of working two conflicting crimes, a ruthless ex-cop determined to take him down, and finding a way to manage a love life. He'll be pushed to his limits and forced to confront his own sense of morality. Will he be able to walk that fine line between right and wrong and do his job?

The newest trailer to the left offers an extended look at the new episodes. Gray (Nikki Amuka-Bird) may be just a bit too smug for her own good. "What I am is better than him," she tells Ripley (Warren Brown). She wishes. But Luther better tread lightly because she's there, along with George Stark (David O'Hara) to move in if he steps on the wrong side of that fine line—and they're not above going to Mary (Sienna Guillory), Luther's latest chance at love, with a file on him.

Meanwhile, Alice (Ruth Wilson) returns, and we love that hand wave of hers. So why is she back? I wanted something," she tells Luther. "You." She also shares her opinion on Mary: "She's not what you want. She's what you want to want." Is she right? Will they even have the chance at a future?

It's going to be a crazy four hours that you don't want to miss. As you're watching, you'll find yourself breathless, and you'll realize it's because you've been holding your breath because this is a whole new level of suspense. That's why we described it as hold your breath scary good, which it is, from the first moment of the four-night television event to the last scene.

The third installment of "Luther" airs Sept. 3-6 at 10 p.m. on BBC America. Will you be watching?
