The 10 Best Crime Dramas This Week (Monday 19th – Sunday 25th February)

It’s another big week in the crime drama arena – when isn’t it – with series two of Hans Rosenfeldt’s London-based series, Marcella, starting up this week (although, what we really want is his Malmö-based series to hurry up and get going over here). Elsewhere, the excellent Craith comes to an end next weekend and, on the same day and at the same time on the BBC, there’s another two-part Strike to get stuck into. Enjoy!
