The 10 Best Crime Dramas This Week (Monday 5th – Sunday 11th June)

Here we go, then: another week with Fargo and Twin Peaks (which is something I’dnever thought I’d be writing five years ago). Elsewhere this week, there’s ITV’s new six-parter, The Loch, and Paula ends its run. Oh, and I’ve included something I forgot to put in last week – US series, Shots Fired on FOX UK. Enjoy!

    I just learned that Rosewood has been cancelled. I liked that show very much- there was a nice ensemble cast. American television is so ruthless. I’ve seen many good shows get the chop because of the almighty advertising dollar.
