Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott (Martin Compston) and his partner Detective Constable Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) along with Superintendent Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar) form a unit called AC-12. This police unit is used to catch criminals. The only problem is they investigate fellow officers as an anti-corruption squad within the police force. They are very good at what they do.
In Series 2 the unit looks into the ambush of a police convoy and it's surviving member Detective Inspector Lindsay Denton (Keeley Hawes). Denton is being investigated due to the fact that all the other members, three police officers, are killed. The only survivors are Denton and a seriously injured protected witness.
As the investigation proceeds the squad begin to put the pieces of the ambush together but they don't like where its heading. You see Kate knows one of the dead officers. She trained with her but it gets worse, Kate was having an affair with the deceased husband.
Denton will continue to be a prime suspect and when the witness dies in the hospital he becomes the prime suspect. The worse part of the series is that as the story goes it ends up going up the chain of command.
This show is one if the best to come out of the BBC in many years. The great thing about the series is that it allows the viewer to put the pieces together along with the squad. When you finally believe that you have put it all together that is when they have ya. This is a show that is worth putting into your DVD library.
Acorn is bringing 'Line of Duty Series 2' to us on September 2, 2014. The quality of the DVD is excellent. The sights and sounds are impeccable. So join the squad of AC-12 and enjoy the job of making sure the police are not above the law.
