You're not at all curious as to how your husband makes his money?
I don't pry into his business.
You know more than you're letting on.
Let me deal with Billy.
-And how are you going to do that?
-Who knows? I'll think of something.
I've got a place to go to college.
-It's in Aberdeen.
I've been sent over here for nothing.
There is nae business to sort out.
I've been given the runaround.
You and Malick better get your excuses straight
before he gets home.
Right, I need to shoot off in a minute.
Nicole's moving to Aberdeen today and I promised that I'd see her off.
I was thinking...it'd be lovely if we went away together.
Just for a weekend, just you and me...
..away from...this place.
Yeah, it would be lovely...but I don't think it's a good idea.
What is it?
It's Billy. He's back.
What, did he tell you he was coming back?
I'd no idea. I swear.
You know what Billy's like - he just does what he wants.
Go! Just go!
KNOCK ON DOOR
Yes, please. Just give me a couple of minutes, thanks.
Look, I'm going to go to the salon. The girls cover me for me there.
I'll tell Billy I was with a customer and missed the phone.
Excellent, excellent. No, I'll have officers RV at each location in...
30 minutes. Great, thanks.
Right, gather round, everybody.
Billy Kennedy has just landed at Glasgow Airport.
On a one-way ticket. The timing is perfect.
Because the Inland Revenue has just given us
the go-ahead to raid these businesses.
That means in 30 minutes we hit Mandy Kennedy's
two tanning salons, the Tall Ship, Amber Cabs
and Paul Malick's law firm, with a small army of tax inspectors.
Now, they're all going to be undergoing a forensic audit.
DC Cooper, how are the street level operations going?
Still dragging in all known dealers?
Well, the cells are overflowing.
Paperwork's stacked a foot high in the in-tray.
As of today, they will not be selling drugs or laundering their proceeds.
We're about to throw a huge spanner in the works.
And all we need is one thread - one thread in any of their books
that we can pull at, and it could bring down the whole house of cards.
If HMRC find any financial irregularities whatsoever,
they've got the power to take them down completely.
Now, the weak link here is Mandy Kennedy.
Now, I want us to lean on her hard. Unsettle her.
I want her brought in for questioning.
HMRC will be the ones issuing the warrants.
Officially, we're just there in our capacity,
to make sure they go about their business unimpeded.
But if they turn up anything untoward early doors, all the better.
We start feeling collars there and then.
I'm going to take Paul Malick's office.
DC Cooper, tanning salons seems like a good fit for you,
take a uniform with you.
DS Grant, you take Amber Cabs and the Tall Ship.
HMRC are going to meet us there.
Let's do this, people. Let's do it properly. Come on, come on.
-That's us set up for opening.
D'you mind if I head out for ten minutes?
-Well, Nicole's leaving today.
-I just...wanted to go say goodbye you know.
-Oh, aye? Leaving where?
Shieldinch. After everything's that happened...
The wean, her da, Gareth and all that...
Aye, aye...on you go.
Gi' her that. A leaving present.
Are you sure?
Tell her I wish her the best of luck.
Right, that's the last of it.
You are...sure about this?
Yeah. I am.
-The flat looks lovely.
-Nice, isn't it?
And it's like two minutes walk to college,
and I've already booked Grace in for day care.
Listen...I'm really glad you're so on top of this all.
And, Nic, if you're sure about this,
then I think you're doing the right thing.
Well, it was bound to happen eventually, wasn't it?
I had to do the right thing at some point, even if it was a mistake.
-KNOCK ON DOOR
-Sorry, I... Hiya.
I'm glad I never missed you.
I just wanted to say goodbye...you know...
..you've always treated me a lot better than I treated you.
I know that now.
It would be wrong of me to leave without saying so.
I think you're doing the right thing, Nicole.
All part of growing up and moving on.
What you just said, well, you're doing exactly that.
..asked me to gie you this. He said to wish you all the best.
That's Lenny's money?
-Tell him to keep it.
Gie it to the wean, it's a fair whack.
No, Stevie, I don't want his money.
Gareth wouldn't want me to take it either.
Tell him that, he'll know why.
Right, I'd better go. Can I?
All right, wee missus...
..you have fun.
Hope to see you soon.
Thanks. I mean it.
-See you later.
Gabriel! I thought you weren't coming.
'Course I was going to come. So, are we all set?
As set as I'll ever be.
I'm going to miss you.
I'll miss you, too.
It's not like she's emigrating.
Are you not going with them?
Aye, why don't you?
Leyla's going to stay there a couple of nights.
You'll be company for her coming back on the train.
I think I've earned the break, after what happened last week.
You could do with a break, too, after...
everything you've been through recently.
It's a good idea.
Go on, we'd love it if you came.
OK, I'll go and throw a bag together.
Did you get the text?
Where's it coming in?
Well, the Spanish said that Billy had organised it. He'll tell us.
Nice of them to keep us informed.
Yep. You'd think they'd have learnt their lesson by now,
-about giving Billy his head.
Anyway, after tonight, we'll be shot of him one way or another.
And me? I'll be glad.
All right, guys?
What's this? Premature celebrations?
Anything I should know about?
That's what I was just saying. What's happening tonight?
Liverpool and Spain, it's all sorted.
A wee bit more detail wouldnae go amiss.
We brought it in at Liverpool.
And it's being couriered to us, right now as speak.
Some bike messenger's going to turn up and say, "Excuse me,
"do you want to sign here for the eight kilos of heroin"?
It's coming in in a ship load of tyres.
It's going to be delivered to garages around Glasgow.
Our delivery's coming to Montego Motors later today.
MY Montego Motors?
I thought we were partners.
A heads-up would have been nice!
Well, once this final shipment is in tonight, gentlemen, that's it.
You're all good.
Our Spanish friends will have their money back in full
within the next three weeks.
You'll be able to go home again.
Erm, well... I've been thinking about that.
I've been enjoying myself here.
Spain...Spain's not really my world.
She'll get used to it here.
This has a good wee operation we've got going here.
I think the polis did us a favour
-when they huckled that first shipment.
-A favour, aye?
A favour that took us six months to put right again!
But in doing so, the polis exposed their informer.
YOUR informer, you mean.
Aye, but it gave us the chance to tighten up the operation.
It's bulletproof now. It runs like clockwork.
Why stop now? There's millions to be made here.
The odds are against it, Billy.
Aye, if you play the odds.
You not got the bottle for it, Paul, no?
I'm not saying that.
But it's not just our decision to make, is it?
I'll have to talk to the Spanish,
see if they'd be happy to keep filling the pipeline.
Course they will.
Anyway, you do that - tell them me and Lenny are back in.
Right, I've got a car waiting.
I'm going back to the hotel.
I haven't seen Mandy yet. See you later.
See you, Billy.
We need to talk.
I have to get back to the office right now. I'll call you.
Can I help you with something?
Aye, Lenny's got a deal with a job lot of tyres.
They'll be arriving some time later the day.
I'm going to need you here tonight to take delivery of them.
Lenny didnae say anything about it to me.
I'm telling you now.
All you've to do is let them in.
Keep the tyres here and somebody will be around to collect them.
Who'll collect them?
Just do what you're telt, wee man, will you?
I'll give you a call later when the delivery's nearly here.
Just turn up, let them in, and then lock up safe after.
You got that?
Right c'mon. You're going to miss your train.
Look, you're not far away, honey.
You need me - any time - you just shout
and I'll be there within three hours. Yeah?
OK. Thanks, Gabriel.
So many memories.
That's what home is, sweetheart.
It'll always be here if you need it.
We'll always be here if you need us.
I can't believe we're actually doing this.
All day I've been waiting for you to change your mind.
No, it's the right thing to do.
I know. It's OK.
Be good for your mother now, OK?
Come on, get going.
Good morning. I'm Detective Chief Inspector Donald. Is Mr Malick in?
Mr Paul Malick?
Detective Chief Inspector Donald.
I have a warrant to search these premises,
including a full financial audit.
The audit will be conducted by my colleague here
from Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs.
This isn't convenient. We've just opened up for the day.
You can carry on your business.
I just need a place to work, and a copy of all your accounts
going back five years, your current ledger, VAT bills, tax statements.
You know the drill, I'm sure. Are you the manager?
-Then we'll be needing your cooperation, too, please.
Till receipts, petty cash, current stock levels,
and outstanding invoices.
If you had any plans for this afternoon, Mr Murdoch,
I suggest you cancel them. I'll be needing you here.
It's all right, Stevie. Give them everything they need.
OK, you guys can take Amber Cabs, and you two come with me.
'Listen to me very carefully -
-'Amber Cabs is about to get a visit from the tax man.'
They just want to look through the records, the books, financial stuff.
Just give them all that.
But I need you to do something for me.
-'Go into the office...'
-What's all this about?
Look, I told you, I don't have the time, OK?
I can see them now.
-Are you there?
Right, open the safe.
-There's money in there I keep for a rainy day.
I need you to take it out of there and put it somewhere safe.
Your flat's probably fine.
Listen, there's not many people I'd trust with this, Jimmy.
'All right, but I want you to come pick it up yourself
'as soon as possible.'
You were going to answer some questions for the nice man
from the Inland Revenue.
Yeah, let's go.
Taxi, is it?
There's nothing wrong with a husband giving his wife some money
to set up a little business.
It keeps me out of his way. I run it.
Billy's got nothing to do wi' it.
Or is Billy forcing you to do something here
you don't want to be doing?
We can help you, you know that?
We need to talk. Properly. Away from here.
Excuse me, I need to make a phone call.
There's nothing here that actually accuses me of anything.
Do you want to get that?
I can't talk right now.
I need your help. The police are here.
They say they're auditing the books.
-What have you done, Mandy?
We can't discuss this on the phone.
I try to help you people, I really do, but sometimes...
you're your own worst enemies.
-Don't call me again.
-My wife, Inspector.
Let's discuss this with your superiors, shall we?
We play golf together.
It's not looking good, is it, Mandy?
Don't go taking the blame for these men.
I advise you to come back to the station and talk to us.
I don't know anything.
Then there's no harm in it, is there?
You know, I know, this is nothing more than harassment.
You stand there in my boozer
and tell me these clowns can do what they want?
If there's anything in particular you'd like to tell us,
Mr Murdoch, this whole process could go a lot quicker.
I can tell you my conscience is clear and my books are clean,
so if you want to keep wasting your time...
We'll see. There's a lot of businesses in Shieldinch
with your name on the balance sheets.
We'll be taking a look at all of them.
The big chap's wanting answers to questions, I've not got a clue.
Are we full rate or flat rate VAT payers?
Do we put dodgy barrels down as loss
or do we return them to the brewery?
Dodgy barrels, you hear him? We wouldn't do that. It's illegal.
I'll go and have a word with him.
Yes, but, sir...
Yes, sir, it was in writing.
Thank you, Superintendent.
This is completely unacceptable, Detective Chief Inspector.
I am entitled to written notice, in advance, of any such inquiries...
That's not how law enforcement works, Mr Malick.
We don't pop a note through the door of a burglar
before we lift them in the morning.
Really? I've seen your conviction rates, Inspector.
Well, we've learnt from our mistakes with people like you.
"People like me."
You may wish to withdraw that statement, Officer,
unless you want me to sue you for slander.
I'm just an ordinary civilian, with no criminal record or convictions.
I'll have to cancel all my appointments this afternoon
due to this intrusion.
Yeah. I find you can tell a man by the company he keeps.
You really think I'd launder money through my own business?
How stupid would I have to be?
Well, we'll know soon enough, won't we?
Awkward, isn't it? And once your clients find out we've been
looking into your files, they're not going to be too happy, are they?
Anyway, I'll let you get on.
It shouldn't take more than a couple of days.
Your tanning salons...
Sorry, you and your husband's tanning salons.
Why is it so suspicious that a husband and wife
should set up a business together?
Because the husband's Billy.
And the beauty business isn't really his domain.
Which makes me suspect that this business was set up for a reason
other than giving the people of Glasgow a healthy year-round glow.
You've seen the books now. It's a nice little earner.
A nice little legitimate earner.
Don't take it personally, Mrs Kennedy.
We're not just checking you out.
Right now, Billy and Lenny Murdoch will realise that we're taking
a long, hard look at all of their businesses to...
Right on cue.
-Aren't you going to answer it?
-I thought I'd already had my one call.
You're not under arrest, Mrs Kennedy.
Billy's going to be wondering where you are.
You don't want to get into trouble with him, do you?
I'm not giving you the satisfaction of eavesdropping
on a private phone call between me and my husband.
Now, as you've reminded me, I'm not under arrest.
So presumably I'm free to go.
Billy ever tell you about a boy called Gareth O'Connor?
He used to work for Billy.
He did a lot of bad things, but his heart was in the right place.
He didn't have a lucky life.
Or a long one.
See, Gareth gave us some information about Billy.
And Billy found out.
And Gareth wouldn't take my protection.
Then one day he put on his best suit, let Billy take him to the waterside,
shoot him in the head and dump him in the Clyde.
He was 18 years old.
And his girlfriend, Nicole...
Gabriel Brodie's niece, yeah? Yeah.
She gave birth the same day.
Gareth did all that to protect his family...
So, yeah, if that's the man you want to go back to you're free to go.
568 quid, you say?
According to your records for the last VAT quarter.
Mind if I check those figures myself?
What do you know - you're right.
I don't know how that could've happened.
Well, we'll wrap up for the day here soon,
but we'll be back at 9am sharp tomorrow.
Get through the rest of that lot.
I'll be here when you need me.
Don't be doing anything stupid now, like fleeing the country.
Yeah, with 500 quid of dodgy money? Hmmm, wonder how far I'll get?
HE DIALS NUMBER
Come on, come on...
'Hi, this is Mandy. Leave a message and I'll get back to you.'
It's me. Have you spoken to Mandy?
'No, I haven't seen her since I got back. How?'
She's screwed up.
I don't know how, I don't know what she's done,
but we have the police and the Inland Revenue all over us
today running audits,
'including the tanning salons.
'You need to make sure she's keeping her mouth shut, Billy.'
Are you asking me or telling me?
I've just had to re-route the shipment away
from Montego Motors because there are police all over Shieldinch.
'And I don't need your wife calling me in the middle of it all
'because the police might want to take her in'
for some questioning.
So I'll do my end of the job here and you do yours, all right?
LINE GOES DEAD Aye, fine, OK.
FRONT DOOR OPENS
It's all OK.
All OK how?
The books are balanced and I said nothing to the police.
So, no "Welcome back, Billy"?
"Nice to see you"?
Instead it's straight in the door with the guilty conscience?
Well, of course I'm glad you're back.
-I missed you.
-Did you now?
Right, tell me everything.
-Did the polis arrest you?
So why did you go down to the cop shop to talk to them, then?
Because...because I thought it would look worse if I didn't.
What did you talk about?
Nothing, Billy, I swear.
I just thought if they were going to waste my time,
I might as well waste theirs.
What did they say about me?
They wanted to know why you of all people
were investing in the beauty business.
I told them you did it for me,
so I'd have something to do while I was over here.
Who else did they talk about?
Lenny Murdoch and Paul Malick. They're auditing everybody, Billy.
All the businesses.
-You've messed up the books, haven't you?
No, Billy. I don't think so. I mean, it's complicated...
Did you do it deliberately? Hm?
Hoping they'd come looking?
Hoping they'd pin something on me?
Get me out of your hair, me back in the pokey again?
No, Billy, it's not like that!
Why'd you call Malick and no' me?
He's the one in charge here.
No. No, pet.
I'm in charge.
See, it's when people forget that, that's when the trouble starts.
I had a problem with that here, about a year ago.
Polis talking to somebody close to me.
It didnae turn out too well for the party in question that time.
What about this. Mm?
-You've had a man here, haven't you, while I've been away?
While the cat's away?
Good looking woman like yourself.
Maybe he wouldn't like you so much
if you had a couple of wee scars on your face.
Where's your mobile?
-Billy, you've got the wrong end of the...
-Shut it. Give me your bag.
You're not gonnae be needing them, are you?
I'm away out.
You, you're staying here.
I'll tell the hotel folk down the stairs that you're not well.
Where are you going?
I'm just going to make a few inquiries.
How long will you be?
As long as it takes.
We'll get to the bottom of this when I get back.
So, what do you think? Did we achieve anything today?
Well, we've got a full house of drug dealers in the cells.
That'll keep the courts busy for a few days.
Oh, ye pair of little faith.
There's a lot less drugs being sold on the streets of Glasgow tonight.
Murdoch, Kennedy and Malick, they're not going to be sleeping well,
knowing we'll be doorstepping them first thing in the morning
to continue digging through their nasty wee businesses.
Their movements are restricted. They're going to be paranoid, jumpy.
This is when people start making mistakes.
-All in all, a decent day.
-I'll drink to that.
Right, back at 7am sharp.
I want to debrief the entire team about what's going on
in Shieldinch before we roll out again after the bad guys.
-Good night, sir.
Yeah, I know.
What about the Keeworth Estate? Polis all over that an' all?
Right, just keep the head. Spread the word. OK, bye.
-What was all that about today?
It's all right, Jimmy, just the polis trying to wind me up.
-My lawyer's all over it.
-Well, you can have this back.
Your rainy-day money from the safe! What were you expecting, a monsoon?
I cannae keep walking around with cash like this.
I can't take it right now. I've got an appointment.
Bring it back in a couple of days.
There's no way to expect it. I'm going down there myself.
But listen, there's something I need to talk to you about.
-There's some kind of uniformed polis operation
going on here. A lot of boys are getting hauled in off the street.
They've nothing concrete or we'd already be in jail.
We just have to keep calm.
You know they've turned over the tanning salons, as well.
Course they did. How did Mandy hold up?
She called me when DCI Donald was standing right there where you are.
I told Billy to keep her in line
We're close, this close, to settling this.
Last thing I need is Billy going off on one
with his wife or anybody else.
Look, I'll call Mandy myself,
see what happened with the salons.
It's no' Mandy, it's me.
Billy. What's happened? Is Mandy OK?
She's fine. Why would she no' be?
What did she say? Do we have a problem at the salons?
We'd better meet.
He's gone to meet the shipment at the new drop point.
Meet me at The Tall Ship.
VACUUM CLEANER STARTS IN HALLWAY
Help! I'm locked in!
Can you open the door?
BANGS ON DOOR
Help. Open the door.
VACUUM STOPS, KEYS JANGLE
-I need to talk to you.
Where have you been? I text you, I'm worried sick here.
Can I come over?
Look, I don't think that would be a very good idea
'now that Billy's back in town.'
Please, Gabriel. I really need you. I need your help.
LINE GOES DEAD
RINGS DOOR BELL
Please, I need your help.
Right, come on, inside.
What's Mandy done? What's going on?
I was kind of hoping you could tell me what was going on, Mr Malick.
-Why would I know? I'm asking you.
All I know is that the polis have been talking
to my wife down at the station.
She phones you. You change the delivery address of my shipment.
Then you try and phone her.
So I'm beginning to feel just a wee bit suspicious here myself.
-You've got this all wrong, Billy.
The police took a shot in the dark at disrupting us today.
You think we're responsible for that?
I've been taking care of it.
I've had the Spanish re-route the delivery away
from Montego Motors because it's too risky.
You didn't think to ask me first, no?
This is the whole bloody problem, Billy.
You would just draw attention to yourself, don't you see?
Once this shipment's done tonight and the Spanish are paid off,
that's it. We don't want to deal with you any more.
You just don't get it, Billy.
You're not that special.
Being able to what? Slap around a few prostitutes?
Murder some teenager?
That doesn't make you top dog.
Brains, Billy - that's what it takes.
-Brains. And you don't have any.
-Brains, is it?
Yes, Billy. Brains.
I've been protecting you from your mistakes for months now.
We all have. Me, Lenny, even your long-suffering wife.
You're the weak link in the chain.
If Mandy has dobbed us in over these tanning salon accounts,
God help you both.
The Spanish just wanted to put a bullet in your head, you know that?
Drop you off a boat into the Mediterranean.
It was me who saved you from that, Billy.
Because I knew how I could use you to make money.
We've all been using you, Billy.
You're just a thug, you're not the boss here. I'm the boss.
Well, Mr Malick...
..I may not be an educated man like yourself...
..but it's men like me that come out on top round here.
The Spanish should've done me while they could.
Anyway, I'd like you to take a wee message to the Spaniards from me.
PHONE RINGS MALICK CHOKES
That's it... That's it.
What good's your brains now, Mr Malick?
'Hi. This is Paul Malick. Please leave me a brief message.'
It's me. I'm down at the garage, let them know I'm here.
How did you get on with Mandy?
Listen, I'll talk to you about
how I'm going to deal with her and Billy when I get back.
'I'm down at the garage, let them know I'm here.
'How did you get on with Mandy?
'Listen, I'll talk to you about how I'm going to deal with her
'and Billy when I get back.'
Did Billy do that to you? Animal.
It was awful, Gabriel.
He locked me in the hotel room.
How did you get out?
A maid helped me and I walked out.
I should have walked out years ago.
-He found your razor in the bathroom.
Then he took my phone.
He doesn't know it's you. I deleted all our texts.
We need to talk to the polis.
No. The police can't help us.
They never could.
Billy's reach is so far.
If I turn myself over to them, he'll find me easily.
Today was horrendous.
They raided the businesses, they've already had me in
for questioning, now they're going through the books.
-If I've made a mistake and I don't know, I might have...
..Billy will kill me.
I mean literally kill me.
I've never seen him like that before.
What are we going to do?
-We'll be dead if we don't do something.
-I don't know.
I don't know.
Look, just...stay here tonight, right?
You'll be safe.
-I need time to think.
Where's Billy now?
I don't know.
# It starts in my belly
# Then up to my heart
# Into my mouth
# I can't keep it shut
# Do you recognise the smell?
# Is that that how you tell
# Us apart? #
The man needs moving. I cannae do it all by myself.
Me? Look, no.
It isnae a request, pal.
I've got a mate lives in the Highlands.
She'll put you up for a bit if I ask. You'll be safe.
I want to meet, but where I say.
Wherever you want.
You know I've only ever wanted what's best for you.
