We have the police and Inland Revenue
all over us today, running audits.
'You need to make sure she's keeping her mouth shut.'
-You've had a man here, haven't you, while I was away.
Well, maybe he wouldnae like you so much
if you had a couple of wee scars on your face.
Billy will kill me.
I've never seen him like that before.
What are we going to do?
I'd like you to take a message to the Spaniards from me.
VOICEMAIL: 'Hi, this is Paul Malick. Please leave me a brief message.'
It's me. Listen, I'll talk to you
about how I'm going to deal with her and Billy when I get back.
Did you really think you'd get away wi' it?
I'd roll over and that would be it?
Big mistake, Paul.
everyone has a line.
That's just the way it is.
If you push somebody,
if you push a man beyond that line, then...
Well, they either lose their self-respect or...
I'm not saying you're the only one.
'Lenny owes me.'
Here he is, trying to ease me out.
He shoulda made sure there'd be nae comeback.
Cos, believe me, there's gonnae be a comeback.
And then there's her.
(Let's go back to bed.)
There we go.
Yeah, I need a cab. The Tall Ship flat.
It's one of Lenny's pals. Just a wee bit incapacitated.
Said to ask for Jimmy Mullen. Only him.
'Um, I think Jimmy's busy at the moment.
Tell him to come to the side door.
Come on Eamonn, son, move it along, eh?
JIMMY: Lenny? You up there?
Aw, Billy, somebody phoned a cab. Is it for you?
No, not just me.
Ooh! The state's he in. He's well out o' it.
Oh, he is that all right.
Look, Billy, if he's sick in the cab, there's a charge.
He'll no' do that.
I've seen nothing, all right?
I'll no' tell a soul.
I know you'll no'. That's why I asked for you.
Lenny always said you could be relied on.
Relied on? To do what?
To get a man out a corner.
I've a problem, right?
Man needs moving.
Cannae do it all by myself.
What, me? Look, no...
It isnae a request, pal.
MUSIC: "Oh Yeah" by Can
Where we goin'?
Here it comes. I'll get his legs, put him on his side.
TRAIN ROARS PAST
What, you planning on singing a wee hymn? Eh?
Let's get out o' here.
C'mon, Malick. Where're ye?
'Where are we goin' now?'
'Just take the next exit.'
There, that'll do.
What's your take on women, Jimmy?
What, me? I...
I don't know... I've no' got one any mair.
You're probably better off that way.
There's no' one of them can be trusted.
Look, you don't have do this.
Lenny said you could rely on me.
Yeah, that'll be all right, then(!)
Look, I-I'm no' gonnae go squealing.
See, trouble is, how can I be sure of that? Eh?
If I believed you,
and I might end up regrettin' it for the rest of my natural.
What kind of retirement plan's that?
Oh, I swear!
Oh, for the love of Jesus!
I've got a wean. She needs her dad. Please!
Any last words?
I'm begging you. Don't!
What've I ever done?
Right, turn round.
You're not gonnae grass me.
-Aye, you're right.
-Shut up and listen.
You're a family man?
You know that, if you grass me...
you wouldnae be the first I'd do.
What d'you mean?
I want you to remember just how that felt, Jimmy.
And then think about how that would feel for them.
See, you and Lenny, you got wee Cal back.
The next time, you might no' be so lucky.
So it was you..?
Oh, come on.
Come on - now or no'.
Look, look, look...
I'll make it easy for you. There.
I'll even let you go
and get the pool cue you use for warding off the drunks.
-You're an animal!
-Aye, I know.
Right, drop me at a taxi rank and then burn this heap.
What, my cab?
None of this, Jimmy... None of this is coming back to me.
You got that?
Hey, hey. Whoa. It's OK.
Billy doesnae know where you are.
Where are Leyla and Zinnie? They'll wonder why I'm here.
They're still in Aberdeen.
They won't be back for a day or so.
There's nothing to be sorry for.
How about involving you in all this for a kick off?
Do you not think I was involved already?
All right, maybe it's not exactly what I'd in mind but...
What's that mean?
Gabriel, if you didn't want me here,
-you should've slammed the door on me.
That's not what I said
Listen, I've got a plan.
I've got a mate, lives in the Highlands.
She'll put you up for a bit, if I ask.
I don't know. But we'll think of something.
But the main thing is, you'll be running your own life.
And you won't have Billy ordering you about. You'll be safe.
There's cornflakes in there.
I was thinking more bacon roll, brown sauce, heavy on the grease.
You know what? That sounds like another plan.
Look, the Oyster'll be open soon.
I'll just splash some water on my face.
Let's see what Mr Malick's been up to.
MALICK: 'It's me again. I left you a message, you're not getting back.
'Anyway, everything's sorted wi' the shipment.
'I've no' told the jannie anything.'
No jannie, eh?
-So, the impact of the train threw him over there?
No cards? Nothing with a name on it?
Nearest houses, 15 minutes. Ditto pubs, shops, businesses.
And it's a tidy walk from the station.
What about a vehicle? Was there a car he could've used?
No. No car keys, either.
So, in other words, the only way our vic could've got there was on foot.
In the dark. Across a muddy road.
Most they've ever walked on is carpet.
So what was he doing?
And why no credit cards? No other ID?
I've got to meet the HMRC guys. Keep me in the loop, yeah?
Can I help you?
Well, should I have?
You're her driver.
Aye, and you're her husband.
What, am I meant to be on call 24/7?
What, have you lost her?
She'll no' be needing you today.
That suits me.
I've got better things to be doing with my time
than carry her shopping about.
You know - having my breakfast.
So if you don't mind...
You do that.
What, you forget how to knock?
Somebody must have knocked the knocker. It's a rough neighbourhood.
I was thinking we should catch up.
We're supposed to be partners, after all.
Were you here last night?
I found a glass on the table.
I was waiting for you.
What? You've no' heard of telephones?
Malick doesnae want us to use them.
Wants us only to talk face-to-face fae now on.
You've seen him, then?
Aye, last night.
That's what I was waiting to tell you.
Man's paranoid about all the polis activity.
He's worried his phone's bugged.
That's just stupid.
They have bugged us before, haven't they?
What did he have to say?
-Have you no' talked to him?
-Come on, Billy, just tell us.
Ah... Well, I had to do a wee bit of grovellin'.
I mean, whatever else I am, I'm no' an idiot.
I know which way the wind's blowing.
Malick's not exactly secretary of my fan club, is he?
-What did he say?
..went on about how I tried his patience
and how, if it was down to him, I'd be out.
Luckily the Spaniards think I've got a wee bit mair to bring.
You... You don't need to worry. They still want you calling the shots.
You still havenae said what you want.
I just want to be brought up to speed.
Well, it's my shipment, right?
And I get why I wasnae told about the switch. But...
..now I need to know where it went.
That's all you need know.
Anybody'd think you didnae trust me.
I'm just following orders.
Spaniards told me to keep on top of things.
If you want to make your own decisions, that's up to you. Right?
Where're you going?
Keep your heid. Just goin' for a leak.
I'm an old man - this cold air's killing me.
DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES
HE WHISTLES TUNELESSLY
-DOOR CLOSES GABRIEL:
-Hey ho, only me.
But, hey, stay well out of sight.
I just saw Billy.
Mandy, you up there?
-'Where are you?'
Doesn't matter. Just listen.
'I want to meet. But where I say.'
Whatever you want.
You know I've only ever wanted what's best for you.
Jimmy, you got a second?
-You havenae seen Mandy Kennedy have you?
Oh, nae reason. Don't worry.
Has something happened to her?
Why you saying that?
Oh, it's just you looked a bit worried, that's all.
No, I just want to know that she's OK.
-If you see herm let me know. All right?
KELLY-MARIE: Hey. It's just me.
Oh, Jimmy. Y'all right?
Hi, Kell. Aye, brand new.
-You looking for Ma?
-No... Aye, aye.
She said something about fixing a light.
-Are you OK?
-Aye, why wouldn't I be?
Have you no' got Cal wi' you?
Be an hour or so yet.
Aye, s'pose it will.
I thought you'd have all the school times and holidays down pat.
Isn't that the case for us parents?
Aye, maybe that's why I don't.
Right, I know there's something no' right here, so...
are you gonnae tell me what it is?
I'm only ever part-time, hen. Not a proper da.
You know, when I was wee, I used to look up to my dad.
How can Madonna do that wi' me?
What's brought this on?
Never mind, just forget I said anything.
No, Jimmy, tell me.
Well, I'm just...
..totting up my life, that's all.
Can I help you?
I'm looking for Paul Malick.
I'm Fi Malick, his wife. You are...?
My name's Murdoch. I'm a colleague.
Paul's never mentioned you before.
Is he here?
Why would he be? He's at work.
No, I tried there. They've not seen him.
I thought you said you were a colleague?
Where is he?
I'd say that was his business.
If he's not at his desk, maybe he'd a meeting.
Why don't you send him an e-mail, like anyone else?
Because I'm not anyone else.
And I think it'd be best if this didn't go in an e-mail.
This way. Wipe your feet.
Here. If you leave it there, I'll make sure he knows.
I won't be a minute.
Come on, darling. Come to Mummy. Come on...
Come on, Tiber.
What on earth are you doing?
Who's this? It's a Spanish number.
How should I know? And it's none of your business.
-I want you out of here!
-I couldn't care less, missus.
Because me and your man,
we're supposed to be having a wee chat.
But now he's not answering his calls.
I need to find out where he is.
And that gives you licence to go through his things?
You tell me, then.
Only I'm guessing you've even less of a clue than I have.
We're married. Not joined at the hip.
If he's not answering,
-maybe he's been called away on business.
I want you to leave now. That, or I'll call the police.
Yeah, it's me. Listen, Billy Kennedy was at my flat last night.
Did he take one of our cabs home?
All right? Who was the driver?
Just a wee change of plan.
Leave the gear where it is, but keep your eye on it, all right?
ENGINE STARTS UP
You get a pick-up last night from my place?
-Was it Billy?
-Was he alone?
Where did you take him? Did he meet anybody?
No, no, just his hotel.
So you didn't see him with this Malick character?
You know, fond of himself - he's been round here before.
But I've got a question for you.
You mind that discussion we had about somebody bigger
maybe pulling the strings behind Cal's kidnapping?
It was Kennedy, wasn't it?
-Don't know what you're talking about.
-Aye, you do.
When did you find out?
-No then. No for sure.
-No for sure?
-Or was there a reason you didnae want to find out?
Well, you two are in business. Might have upset things.
You only know half the story, Jimmy. Walk away.
All you care about is money.
He kidnaps Cal, and you still go into business with him.
You think I like it?
I've telt you, there's more to this than you know.
So stay out of it.
The wee man's better off without you as a grandad!
What is it you want, Jimmy?
-You were asking about Mandy Kennedy.
-You seen her?
No. But I got the feeling you looked worried.
You've a right to be.
I cannae go into it, but I was with Billy last night.
-Why did you no tell me that before?
-See, he talked about women...
-What do you mean, "talked"?
I think he meant her.
Now, if there's bad blood between them,
she needs to get away fae here.
That nut-job, he's out of control.
She's left him.
But it's all right - we're going to get her somewhere
where he cannae touch her.
I hope you're right about that.
Because if Billy wants to hurt somebody,
there's nothing anybody can dae.
Not the law. Not you, me...naebody.
Yeah, what you got?
Aye, that's Eamonn.
OK, get yourself back here.
I'm going back to the hotel. If she shows, you call me, right?
-Yeah, who is this?
-Is that Carlos?
-My name's Murdoch.
How's the weather over there in Spain?
No idea. We've got air con.
Get to the point.
I understand you might've been talking to Paul Malick this morning?
How did you get this number?
What does that matter? Question is, where is he?
Is he over there?
How about I ask you the same question?
Where is he?
Well, if I knew that, I wouldn't be asking you.
-Who are you?
-Asking questions is a dangerous hobby.
When I need you, I'll find you. You don't call this number.
-Sir? I just came from the PM.
-OK, what you got?
Well, there was enough of his neck intact
for the pathologist to see abrasions consistent with strangulation.
Strangulation? Any prints?
His watch. First off, all I saw was an inscription.
"To Paul. L."
Then I noticed there was a serial number.
Each one's individual, so I contacted the manufacturer.
This one was purchased by a Lucy Galbraith,
-lawyer of this parish.
-I know her.
She works with Paul Malick. He's the registered owner.
Christ. He's our victim?
If it is him, is it possible it's connected?
We're shaking trees. Maybe someone got rattled.
Next thing, Malick's dead.
And Billy Kennedy arrived in Scotland 36 hours ago.
Can you be quick? I'm late as it is.
What's that...the school run?
Mrs Malick, I'm afraid I have some very bad news.
A body was found earlier this morning.
He's been positively identified as your husband.
It can't be him. You've identified the wrong person.
Paul always says how inept you people are.
I'm afraid there's been no mistake.
Your husband was arrested for drink-driving about 18 months ago.
Charges were dropped, but his DNA remains on file
and a match has been confirmed.
Perhaps there's someone I could call to be with you?
How...? Was it an accident?
Unfortunately, we're not able to say too much just yet.
We're treating his death as suspicious.
I'm really sorry.
The coroner will require a positive ID.
That won't be just yet.
-And if you're not up to it...
I want to see him.
I'm afraid we'll have to hold on
to his personal effects for the moment,
as part of a wider enquiry.
His clothing. Wallet. Watch.
We'll make sure you have them as soon as we can.
The rest, yes. But not the watch.
She should have it.
When Paul didn't come home last night...
Well, I've gotten used to where he'd be.
It's him I hated for it. Not her.
What sort of man wears something another woman's given him
and thinks his wife won't see?
Mrs Malick, has Paul ever spoken to you
about any threats he may have received?
What about people he met? Anyone not from your normal circle?
There was someone this morning.
Said he needed to leave a message.
Then started going through Paul's desk.
-Did you get a name?
Oh, great. Miss Marple.
I need to ask you some questions.
Then what? You and they clowns gonnae beat it?
Let me get back to running an honest business here?
-You were at Paul Malick's home this morning.
Can we can cut the games?
Malick was found dead earlier this morning.
Someone had made a concerted effort
to disguise the fact that he'd been murdered.
So why don't we start with what you know about that?
Fine. Exactly nothing.
-So if that's all you came for...
We also had a partial sighting of an Amber Cab
on one of their cameras close to where the body was found.
For some reason, the headlights were off,
as though the driver was trying to avoid
his licence plate being seen.
Now we know by then that Malick was already dead.
So...I'm wondering - was that cab being used to dispose of the body?
My cabs go all over.
Well, you won't mind me bringing in a forensic team, then,
to examine all of your taxis.
You do what you like, sweetheart. Oh...
Just make sure you've got a warrant first.
Is that necessary, if you've nothing to fear?
You get a warrant. Or you keep your hands aff.
Are we clear?
We're clear OK.
I'll be back.
Yeah, it's me. Where are you?
Yeah? Well, get back here.
The Oyster Cafe, soon as.
Hey - keep your cab well out of sight.
You want to tell me what you didnae tell me earlier?
Why the polis are looking to search all my cabs?
Apparently, one was used to dump a body.
I'm not messing about here, Jimmy!
You think I wanted to?
I thought I was gonnae get a bullet in my skull, and that psycho,
he threatened Cal again, and Madonna.
That's how I knew it was him. That animal told me.
But you knew anyway, eh?
Why did you let him away wi' it?
-It wasn't the money.
I mean, he wisnae exactly looking out for you, was he?
What do you mean?
He killed that boy in your flat.
Never even told you.
Are you his insurance?
If anything goes wrong,
everything comes straight back at you.
And the cab?
-He ordered me to burn it.
What do you think?
I put it where naebody'll find it.
All I want to know is what are you gonnae do about Kennedy?
I've been going out of my mind here. Where the hell have you been?
Do you know what I've been going through?
And why lie to get shot of me?
I didn't want to.
Because if you were still here, you'd have stopped me.
From doing what?
-You did what?
No, listen, Gabriel -
I thought if I could make him see it was finished, then maybe...
I don't know...
What, you just thought he would accept that?
Come on! That doesn't sound like the Billy Kennedy I know!
I said listen!
I thought I was doing what was best for us.
You were right.
He'll never let go.
He knows about us
He knew there was someone.
I don't know how he found out it was you.
But I spoke to him earlier.
-What did you say?
You must've said something. Or done something.
Or looked at him the wrong way. How else would he have guessed?
What did you say?
I told him he was wrong, about everything.
-That I'd meet him.
And tell him it was all a big mistake,
that I'd made a big mistake.
Are you mental?
I only told him that to get him out of the hotel.
My passport's in the safe there.
I thought if I could get him out, I could get it.
You went back there for a passport?
I know - I wasn't thinking straight. I was panicking.
I just thought, "We have to get away."
And not to some bloody hut in the Highlands.
He'd find us.
We have to go somewhere he won't - abroad
And when was I going to be included in all this, eh?
First, you lie to get rid of me and now you're planning all this!
-I mean, come on...
-I didn't know what else to do.
I don't know what I'm saying, all right? It's just...
Either way, least we know now.
The sooner we're out of here, the better.
Not now he knows it's you.
Don't you see...?
It was different when it was just me,
when I was the one Billy was after.
You've got people here you love.
Even if you're gone, he can use them to hurt you,
in any number of ways.
Right, that's it.
I'll phone Leyla, I'll tell her to stay in Aberdeen.
She can keep Zinnie with her.
For how long? And then what?
We can't all just run away forever.
What else can we do?
We have to get it sorted.
I don't know how, but...
And we need to be able to protect ourselves.
Use what you need.
SOMEONE KNOCKS THE DOOR
Have you spoken to Malick?
How was I supposed do that?
Through a medium?
I know what happened. He telt you you were out.
You took the huff and you done him in him.
Then you used one of my cabs to dump him? How stupid are you!
The man had it coming. We don't need him.
No, that's where you got it wrong, Billy.
Cos he was the only one keeping you alive.
You took my grandson. I should've killed you then.
He stopped me.
What if I did? It was business.
You know how it works.
Some lines you don't cross.
SOMEONE KNOCKS THE DOOR
Open up, Billy, I know you're in there.
The receptionist told me.
I'm coming! Give a man a chance!
DCI Donald. Be my guest.
Aw, isn't this nice?
You boys having a stag do?
Seeing you're here already,
I hardly need to explain the reason for my visit.
Aye, Lenny just told me.
-It's come as an awful shock, so it did.
-Of course, it has.
You'll be sure to let us know funeral arrangements.
Don't push it, Billy.
Remind me, what was your relationship again?
Man's a lawyer.
No, Billy. He's not just a lawyer. Friends at Holyrood.
Huh...yeah. I imagine this investigation
is going to be quite the glamour fixture.
Played out in the full glare of the media.
Not a lot's going to go unnoticed.
Incidentally, where were you yesterday,
late evening till the early hours?
-What, is this an interview now?
Come on, what's the harm?
-I was with some close pals.
-Snooker club, Greycross Street.
-Want me to give you some names?
-Of course. Your alibi of choice.
I take it Mr Murdoch here was with you?
Eh...no, I cannae say he was.
Listen, I've somewhere I have to be.
So, if there's nothing else you need from me...
Will you tell me where you're going?
I promised the wife I'd take her out for a nice meal.
Bit of an anniversary.
Unless you want to arrest me? Take me down the station.
-Only if you've got a good reason to.
-I hope the restaurant's in Glasgow.
Wouldn't like to think you were looking further afield.
Do you think I'm going to run away? Nae danger.
What reason have I got to run, eh, Lenny?
Anyway...make yourselves at home.
If I knew you were coming, I'd have had restocked the minibar.
Chocolate's all gone, think there's a wee bit of Bombay mix.
See you later.
Goes for you, too - make any attempt to leave the country,
you'll be intercepted.
-Why would I go anywhere?
-You tell me.
You think I killed Malick? Well, tell me this.
Why would I go to his house looking for him
if I knew he was already dead?
Maybe it wasn't him you were looking for.
Mrs Malick told one of my officers
you seemed much more concerned with what was on his desk.
What are you on about?
Well, I'll tell you how that might look.
That you were worried there was something on there confirming you met last night,
prior to his death.
Your cab was stolen?
When exactly was this?
About four-ish. I said.
And you didn't think to dial 999?
I was stuck out in Moss Green. Nae phone, nothing.
No CCTV either.
Which is doubly unfortunate that your cab was stolen
in a locale where cameras rarely last longer than 24 hours,
giving us no record.
Mr Mullen, this is part of a murder investigation.
Now if there's anything you know about that,
or you have information,
you do know that's something you have to give us?
My cab was stolen.
The descriptions are rubbish. Three lads, hooded, average height...
And Mullen would have known about the CCTV.
Every taxi driver in the city knows where NOT to stop his cab.
At least we know which cab we're looking for.
So how do you think we should play it? Hold him?
No. Let's find the cab first. Then re-interview.
Thing I don't get is why? Mullen covering for Lenny,
that would be down to misplaced loyalty.
But why cover for Kennedy?
Maybe he is covering for Lenny.
Stupid, stupid, stupid!
I have been waiting for you.
And waiting is not something I enjoy.
You the guy I spoke to earlier?
I am in the pool room. Get your sorry arse down here.
A bit more privacy upstairs.
Well, you know who I am.
How about telling me who you are?
The only information you need is this - I came to find Malick.
Any insight you can give me regarding that?
I've been looking for him myself.
Bad start. Next question, where is my drugs?
-You had a delivery. Unpaid for.
Little chance of distributing by the looks of things.
So I want its safe return plus the 100K you owe.
And I will be on my way.
No offence here, but I don't even know if you are who you say you are.
Your first contact was Marsden, aka Pedro.
You put a gun to his head thinking he took your grandson.
I don't have time for your games...
So again, where is my drugs?
Me and Malick thought, with the polis around Shieldinch
it was a bit vulnerable, so we moved the merchandise elsewhere.
Sure? Only another interpretation can be put on things.
And what's that?
You took the drugs and took out Malick to cover your tracks.
Then why am I still here?
Do you not think I'd have sold them and be long gone?
You want your gear... I'll take you to it.
They are still in Glasgow?
Couple of miles outside. You can see for yourself.
I have better ways to spend my time.
It is clean. When it rings it will be me.
I will call you tomorrow. Tell you the arrangements.
If you have my money and gear I will try and forget we have ever met.
Of course, if not...
Have you ever been to a bull run, Murdoch?
The bull gets coated with burning wax then chased through the streets.
Whoever kills it, gets to carry its ears, tail and what else,
how do say in English, testicles on a spear.
And later he can eat the best bit.
Is that it?
Just keep the boot open.
You cold son? Huh?
A friend of mine, a developer, he's willing to lend 100K for 30 days.
-I've got a wee delivery job for you Jimmy.
You've got until 3 o'clock to find my drugs.
You don't find it, I will start working my way through
everyone you know to see if they can help me out.
You get Cal, Madonna, Kelly Marie, them all, you get them away.
-Anywhere, anywhere but here, OK.
Tommy, my man, the driver that's bringing the delivery,
he's seen way too much.
I don't want him coming home.
This is a present, for Lenny Murdoch's grandson.
