Thomas Malone, convicted for the murder of Lizzie Kilmuir, was
released this morning. Why did you go after Malone in the first place?
He cried like a baby at Lizzie's funeral. It was odd.
I've withdrawn my transfer request.
I think whatever decision you made, I'm just glad you're staying.
Drew McColl called in. His daughter seems to be missing.
It looks like she was strangled.
He knows you're too scared to arrest him again.
He did it then, and he's done it again!
The daughter of the policeman that put you in prison
has been found dead.
I couldn't even tell you what the girl looks like.
I left. I left her.
Stop it! STOP IT!
The number on the Post-it was registered to
an Andreas Hagan. He's a health and safety officer at Forst Energy.
He's the one saying Danny was drunk when his arm got snagged in the drive shaft.
But it's a barefaced lie.
-Get out my house!
Have you got that passenger manifest yet?
Hagan's confirmed as being on the first flight to Bergen
the morning after Sally's murder.
How did you go on at the Taj?
Alan kicked off when someone jumped the queue.
But apart from not eating his takeaway, not much to report.
How are we doing?
Well...there's a possibility that her murder could be connected to
an article that Sally was working on.
It looks like she was going to accuse Forst Energy
of corporate manslaughter,
so we'd really like to speak to their safety officer, Andreas Hagan.
But he's AWOL in Norway.
Tosh is going to talk to Forst Energy this morning
and see if we can track his movements.
You looking at Alan Killick?
He thought that Sally was having an affair, so...
Drew is not the only one who's going to take a lot of convincing
that Malone didn't do this.
It would be very neat if Thomas Malone did it,
but all three of them have a motive.
-DOOR BANGS CLOSED
-With you in a minute.
MALONE COUGHS AND SPLUTTERS
I'm a free man, eh?
Get some heat in you.
If somebody hurt you, I want to know about it.
-They think I killed Sally McColl.
-And YOU do.
I'm trying to keep an open mind.
You don't make it easy, when Gail gives you a false alibi
for the night Sally died.
Maybe she thought you wouldnae believe the truth.
You've got an answer for everything, haven't you?
The reason I gave you my card
was because I wanted to help you,
cos you sat for years in a prison cell,
and the only thing you had to do to get paroled
was to admit you were guilty.
The fact you couldnae bring yourself to do that,
that means something to me. But don't push it.
They put a hood on my head
and they...threw me in the back of a van.
And when I wouldn't confess to killing Lizzie or Sally,
they knocked me out...
..and they buried me alive.
-Any idea who it was?
You going to tell me?
I'll not be pressing charges.
Billy, we're looking for a high-roof transit van
on the road between Malone's farm and Laxo last night.
-I'll get on it.
-See whoever did this? We go after them hard.
I want everybody to know that Thomas Malone is off limits.
And get Sandy to check out the site where he was buried.
He's up at Jo Halley's place - she thinks someone's staking it out.
Right, I'll go and check it out myself.
Can you see the scratches?
Could have been a polecat, maybe?
A polecat didn't open the gate, or knock over the plant pots!
And the last couple of nights
I saw lights going up and down the old track.
I wouldn't be calling if I didn't think it was important.
Look, I understand you're concerned, after what happened to Sally,
but try not to think the worst all the time.
If you get a look at this vehicle, you let me know.
Can't you have a car parked at the bottom of the road?
Just make sure you're taking the usual security precautions.
Which you are.
Have you news?
Has there been a development?
Oh, no, nothing major, I'm afraid.
Actually, I was wondering if you could tell me
a wee bit about Alan Killick.
I don't know why you'd be looking at him, when Malone's around?
I... It's just...
The time his mother said he got home the night Sally was attacked
doesnae quite match his actual movements.
Are we talking a big difference?
Half an hour one way or the other doesn't matter.
It takes longer than that to get to Fladdabister and back.
Er, and there's just one more question, if you don't mind.
Thomas Malone's been attacked again.
So I have to ask you where were you last night?
It's just procedure, Drew. Given the fact you were involved last time.
I was here.
Was anybody else with you?
Donna Killick dropped around for a while. She's a good friend.
She left around ten.
Does that get me off your hook?
I'll leave you to it.
DOOR OPENS, THEN CLOSES
He knows I'm lying.
This is ridiculous.
I should have told him the truth.
I need to talk to you.
I have to ask you again, what time did you get home
-the night Sally died?
-Whatever my mum said.
-Yeah, she said wrong. That's why I'm asking you.
I wasn't keeping my eye on the clock.
I went for a takeaway, went home, crashed out.
I hear you weren't in a great frame of mind?
You got in an argument with somebody...
..and then didn't even eat the takeaway?
You binned it.
I didn't have that much of an appetite.
I drank too much, I suppose.
You see, a cynic might argue
that you were trying to give yourself an alibi.
I'm not finished yet.
I know you're grieving,
and I know that we all deal with that stuff in our own way.
But you have to answer my questions.
-I know. Shall we just do this?
Where were you last night?
I was here, on my own.
I watched a film... and then went to my bed.
Can you open the doors of that van for me?
I'm gonnae want forensics to come up and have a look at that.
In the meantime, I'll take the keys.
Hi, I'm here to see your head of Human Resources.
DS McIntosh. Don't need one.
KNOCK AT DOOR
Cass! There's a face only a father could love!
What do you want?
-YOU need a job.
-In a newspaper?
Well, I could have e-mailed you a link to a recruitment site,
but then I would have missed this vision of loveliness.
-So how're you doing, anyway?
Thought for the day. You can't control how others treat you,
but you can control how you react to it.
-You been at the self-help shelf again?
-Come on, give it a bash.
It's not as if you're up to anything else today.
Actually, I am. Today, like every other day since my life ended,
I'm going to be stalking Edison online.
I'm sorry. Edison! I mean, what kind of name's that, anyway?
-I'm sorry. Sorry!
Sorry for the delay. Had to have a hunt for Mr Hagan's HR file.
He, er, he normally works out of our Norway office.
That's funny. They had it the other way round.
-Is that everything?
-Mr Hagan was due in Bergen yesterday,
but he didn't show. Do you know where he is?
It's possible he had some leave to take.
Could you find out?
To be honest, I don't actually have much contact with Mr Hagan.
Too busy writing his reports, I imagine.
Like the one he wrote about Danny Hamilton.
Mr Hamilton died when his arm was ripped off by a rotating driveshaft
-on one of your rigs.
Mr Hagan filed a request for five days' annual leave.
Does it say where he went?
We don't tend to ask.
Do you know Sally McColl?
She was at your company's charity ball a few weeks ago?
That's entirely possible.
Would she have met Mr Hagan there?
If he was invited, perhaps.
Now, I'm gonnae need to see the guest list.
Plus a copy of the report that Mr Hagan wrote
exonerating Forst Energy for Danny Hamilton's accident.
And a record of all the routine drug and alcohol tests
carried out on Danny Hamilton's rig in the last year.
And I'm gonnae need them today.
I'm looking for Donna Killick - the woman who runs the sanctuary?
-She's not here.
-It's just that... I saw her advert in the Chronicle.
-Looking for volunteers?
-This isn't a good time.
-When would be?
Only, I cycled all the way up here.
The advert said you could just show up during opening hours, I didn't...
Can you just go, please? Just leave.
Are you OK?
It's me - DS McIntosh.
I'm in a rush.
OK, but I need you to make that statement we talked about.
-Just repeat what you said the other day,
about Andreas Hagan's safety report?
How he lied about the cause of your husband's accident?
He didn't lie. The report was right.
But you said Hagan blamed alcohol, and your husband was teetotal?
Danny spent half his life in the middle of the North Sea.
-How would I know if he had a drink problem?
-You're his wife!
Widow! And dead men don't bring home a wage.
-How much did they pay you?
-Don't you dare judge me!
Look, Danny didn't drink, but he wasn't a saint.
There is nothing left for me and the kids.
And with no insurance pay-out...
You take that money and Forst get away with corporate homicide!
If conditions on that rig are as bad as Danny claimed,
more men could die.
Look, I'm sorry. I'm out.
CAR DOOR CLOSES
KNOCK AT DOOR
Jeez, it's like a freezer in here!
I've still got to get the generator going.
Does your daughter want to come in?
Well, that's partly why I wanted to see you.
The incident at the bus stop?
You scared the wits out of her.
I didn't mean to.
Well, maybe you need to think about how you're coming across?
Maybe smarten up a bit.
Unless you're trying for the Charles Manson look deliberately?
Well, while I'm giving unwanted advice, what about getting a job?
Who would want me?
Not everyone's against you.
Well, someone sent some lads round here last night to bury me alive.
Who would do that?
I don't know.
Is that food?
Aye. Chilli. Eat it while it's hot.
-Well, get that generator fixed, yeah?
Aye. Aye, I will do.
A farmer out by Malone's place spotted a van driving along a track at three in the morning.
The owner's been traced.
He says he sold the van yesterday to a garage down by the harbour.
Proprietor, Mr Benny Ray.
So I'm presuming that's the same Benny Ray
that was a witness at Malone's trial?
OK, get up there and talk to him.
Also, Jo Halley has been in touch again - she mentioned
something about a vehicle churning up some old tracks out by her croft?
See if you can get a tyre print.
Someone's bought off Meg Hamilton.
I ran into her at the Forst Energy offices.
She backtracked on everything she said about Danny's accident.
She was also holding an envelope
that was a hell of a lot thicker than Hagan's personnel file.
I had to provide more information than that
when I wanted to join the Brownies.
Forst are hiding something.
The emergency contact, who's she?
The landlady of his place on Whalsay,
who hasn't seen Hagan since the last house inspection a year ago.
I've finished the filing.
You know, you should really think about going paperless.
So, I-I brought you a coffee.
I'll stick it down here,
for when you're ready.
Hey, listen. Um...
Sorry about before.
I feel like a right dick.
I can't believe I didn't make the connection between you and Sally McColl.
The last thing you need right now is someone rocking up, wanting to play with the baby seals.
I'm glad you came up today.
I'm not really on top of things and I don't know when I will be.
If you could stay for a few more days?
Sorry, we're closed for visitors today.
It's fine, Mum. She's a volunteer.
She's gonnae help out round here until things get back to normal.
Hi. I'm Cass. Cassie Perez.
The policeman's daughter?
Yeah. That's right.
Erm... I best get back.
Can I help?
DC Wilson. Police.
-Is this your digger?
I'm looking for a transit van that was sold for scrap yesterday.
You've just missed it. It's off to the crusher.
You ever been one of my customers?
I need to talk to your guys.
Individually. I'm going to need to know where they were last night.
We were all together.
We had a wee party to ourselves.
We got a carry out.
Do you think Cass'll leave?
I don't know.
Duncan reckons if she stays, she's gonnae be selling herself sort.
Like me, you mean?
No, you did the right thing.
Aye, you'd hate the white pudding suppers in Edinburgh.
Still can't get used to people doing that.
Considering Hagan is Norwegian, I was hoping for something a bit more hygge.
Is that a Norwegian thing? Or is it Danish?
I have no idea what you're talking about.
Yeah, you do. It's that cosy thing the Scandinavians do to get through the long winter.
It means the complete absence of anything annoying.
Yeah, unfortunately, that's not a concept I'm familiar with.
Think this is Hagan?
Take a snap shot, see if the landlady can ID him.
It proves that Sally was in contact with Hagan.
Yeah, but we're gonnae need more than that.
How did you go on at the garage?
Benny gave me some cock and bull
about him and his lads going drinking last night.
However, the tyre tracks up at Jo Halley's?
They are a match for the ones at the Malone burial site.
So much for Jo Halley being a paranoid fantasist.
-I never said she was.
-You don't have to.
It's all over your face every time you talk to her.
OK, come on!
I need more on Benny Ray, so ask around.
Billy, what's the matter?
I just had DNA Database on the line.
The sample of DNA we took from Alan Killick...
Yeah, what about it?
It's a partial match for the secondary DNA
found on the scarf used to strangle Lizzie Kilmuir.
Which would mean that
our unknown suspect would have to be related to Alan Killick.
Yeah, on the male side, aye.
Well, that narrows things down quite a bit, doesn't it?
We're closed to visitors today, but I can take a donation?
What are you doing here?
Duncan thought I needed something to take my mind off being dumped,
so I'm volunteering!
This was Duncan's idea?
I'll take you home when I'm done. I want a word.
I said I'd help out with the evening routine.
OK, we'll talk tonight, then.
Alan's DNA is on that scarf? That's impossible.
He wasn't even born when Lizzie was murdered.
No. I said a partial match.
Which means that DNA belongs to a direct male relative.
Father, grandfather, so on down the line.
Alan's father was an only child.
And old man Killick and his brothers were long dead when that girl died.
So it must have been my dad?
You think Kevin killed Lizzie Kilmuir?
I can't rule it out.
Until I can get a sample of his DNA so we can cross-check.
Do you have anything of Kevin's? An old toothbrush, a comb...
He's been dead eight years.
No-one keeps their partner's belongings that long.
Maybe your marriage was happier than mine.
If we can't get a sample of DNA, then we would have to disintern.
So what, you want to dig up his grave?
I take it you need our permission for that?
Because it's not happening.
Given the gravity of the situation,
we would get permission eventually with or without your consent.
Oh, what's the point - just let 'em get on with it.
Mrs Killick, can you see me out?
Er...Drew's not doing so good.
He said you dropped over last night?
Just for an hour or so.
But yet you didnae get back until the wee small hours?
I went for a drive. I lost track of time.
So what about the night that Sally got killed?
Did you lose track of time that night as well?
Cos we know that Alan wasnae here when you said he was.
Is that why you sent your daughter up here?
To spy on us?
No, I didnae send my daughter up here.
I just wanted to let you know that
there was some activity up here last night,
but it was connected to a crime somewhere elsewhere on the island.
You weren't the target.
People think I'm paranoid.
You and Alan and Sally look like you were pretty close?
We got on well.
Did Alan stay over here much?
A few nights a week.
You OK with that?
He could have stayed more, I wouldn't have minded.
Can you have a look at this for me?
Does that look like the man Sally was talking to at the festival?
I think maybe he was younger, but I can't be sure.
Are you sure that they were speaking Norwegian?
Well, I don't speak it much,
but I lip read so I know the shape of the language.
Erm... He was denying something. You know, with his hands up.
That's the stuff in from Forst Energy.
Hagan was at the charity ball,
and Danny Hamilton mysteriously managed to avoid every single
random drug and alcohol test in the two years before his death.
Right, so they've just wiped him from the records?
How else could Hagan claim a tea-total man was an alcoholic?
I was checking to see if Kevin Killick had any kind of record and I found these.
Donna Killick logged several reports of assault
but she always withdrew the charges.
Right, so she protected him, then.
She won't give a DNA sample now, so she's protecting him still.
Some victims can form a bond with their abuser.
It's all right. I understand.
You know, I was thinking maybe you should....
Don't suggest a silent retreat unless you're wearing a stab vest.
No, I was thinking more along the ways of a night off.
See some of your pals?
But whatever you need - just ask.
You said to come back if I was struggling?
Well, I'm not.
Struggling. I'm coping really, really well.
I know that because I watch myself all the time.
To be sure
that I'm not letting...
..what he did change my behaviour
alter my choices or define me.
24/7, I'm keeping it together.
And it's exhausting.
Benny Ray. Ah, Shetland's answer to Liam Gallagher.
He had terrible hair!
I mean, I know we all did back then, but his was just spectacular.
-I can't place him.
But then I wasn't really in the same crowd as you and Lizzie back then.
No. Oh, you mind when, erm, me and Liz finally let you come to
one of our house-parties and you puked all over my mum's sofa?
Jesus. Happy days!
Aye. The day the music died.
Did she know Benny well?
I don't think so.
Mind you, she did talk about having an older man, so you never know.
Of course not, you idiot.
Jeez! I think someone did take him on.
He's got a couple of grandkids, or maybe one.
LAUGHTER AND CHATTER
With Malone. Don't get too involved.
-I don't see the problem.
-You don't? Really?
The Killick family are smack in the middle of a murder investigation, that's the problem.
You honestly think he'd kill his girlfriend?
He runs a wildlife sanctuary!
Right, and-and Hitler was a vegetarian.
I like it up there, OK?
For the first time in ages, I didn't spend the day
thinking about Edison and feeling like an idiot.
And tomorrow's going to be even better. Alan's taking me to Unst.
He's what? What, just the two of you?
Yeah, someone reported a couple of beached seals on the shoreline.
We're going to catch the early ferry.
Is there anything else for the rubbish?
Wait! Cass, Cass, wait, Come here.
You're not going there with him.
Do you not think I'm a bit old to be ordered about, Dad?
OK, just imagine for a second that I'm a police officer
and I'm advising you for your own safety that Alan Killick
is a person of interest in a murder investigation,
which means that he's not in the clear yet,
and until such times as he is,
you are advised not to be on your own with him.
How's that? Is that OK?
He was just standing there, looking into the house.
Is there a problem?
You told me to keep in touch, so...
Is it OK if I come in?
And you were worried about me hanging out with Alan Killick?!
-I'll leave you to it.
Hm. Hm. That's tasty.
Is that your wee girl, eh?
Er, you know what, Thomas, this really isn't a great time.
It's nothing important.
I was just walking by and I... I saw your wee lights on there.
It looks very cosy.
Well, you know.
Maybe once your compensation comes through,
you can get your place sorted.
You know, I was thinking that maybe...
you could help me fix it up.
I'm gonnae get you a lift home.
Your family ever visit you in prison?
What about your mum, though? She visit you?
When you were being held in Shetland, did she visit you in the station?
What did you talk about?
She told me it was my own fault.
Because of the way I am with folk.
She told me if I pleaded innocent, it would be the death of her.
I might as well put the scarf around her neck and kill her dead, too.
Aye, she told me to confess.
And you always did everything she told you?
I just wanted her to love me.
Is that yours?
-Jo! It's me. It's Alan.
You scared me!
I'm sorry. I didn't really feel like talking.
I wanted to spend the night in Sally's room.
But next time, just ring the bell, or text me.
Do you want a coffee?
If you don't mind I just need a wee bit of headspace.
Morning. Sorry for leaving you in the cold like that.
Morning. Right, get a hot cup of tea in us, eh?
You said I should get a job.
I was thinking maybe I could help you out around here?
How did you know Sally was cheating?
Did that thing on your phone where you can find someone's location.
Then she went to Norway for a few days and lied to me about where she was.
Think she was leave me anyway, to be honest with you.
You can't keep someone if they don't want to be with you.
You can't make someone love you.
Looks like the seals have gone back into the water.
Aye. If they were ever here at all.
Oh, I'm just about getting there.
You know, there were guys in the prison who had these,
but I never wanted near one.
-There's only one way to smuggle a phone into a prison, you know.
OK, thanks. That's a wee bit too much information.
That's all right. Look, I'm going on a coffee run.
What do you want?
Er, white, three sugars?
I'm liking your style.
I hear Cass is back.
Aye, dragging her heart behind her.
She'll get over it. We all do.
So what happens now?
We run him to the morgue. Take a sample.
I am sorry to make you do this.
No skin off my nose.
Though there are some who find the whole process harder to stomach.
-So what do you know about Benny?
-He lives with his grandson.
Just the two of them?
Yeah. Well, his mother died - drugs.
And Benny was a dealer back in the day?
They used to call him Benny Blue, and he was arrested more than once.
Never did time?
You thinking what I'm thinking?
Billy, is there a list anywhere of the informants
we used in the 1990s?
Sure. It's on the notice board there.
Next to the Neighbourhood Watch poster.
Can you could ring around and see if there was ever a Benny Ray on the payroll?
I got you...
Sally's expenses... Put together, these are better than a diary. Times, places.
I was able to cross-reference her movements with security footage from Norway.
This is from her most recent trip a few weeks ago.
She visited this cafe in Bergen. Two minutes after she arrived...
They were in there for 23 minutes. Sally paid the bill.
170 krone for two lattes and a skoleboller.
It's a wee pastry thing. Possibly made from solid gold. The prices in Norway are nuts.
No, this is excellent. That's proof positive that they were in contact,
so get hold of Bergen and tell them tracking this guy is a priority.
Just got a result from one of the old boys.
At the time of the Malone trial,
Benny Ray was on Drew McColl's payroll.
I'm DI Perez, Shetland Police.
I wanted to talk to you about the evidence that you
gave at the trial of Thomas Malone.
I'm picking my grandkid up from the school.
Yeah, sorry. It won't take long.
You mind telling me again what you saw that day on the Ferry to Unst?
It was more than 20 years ago!
Well, all the same.
Malone. On a boat. With his mother's car.
I didn't pay him any attention.
I didn't know he had a body in the boot.
But you worked for Drew McColl.
Didn't they ever tell you that as a police informer you shouldn't
have been allowed in that witness box?
The fact that you were discredits the whole trial.
All I know is that if I hadn't spoken up,
that pervert Malone might have got away with it.
What kind of justice would that have been?
You know the night before last,
somebody threatened to bury Thomas Malone alive.
You mind telling me where you were that night?
Watching the Disney Channel.
You told DC Wilson you were at home with a carry out with your mates.
Aye. While watching the Disney Channel.
All right, wee man?
-Is this the figure you wanted?
Huh? It can't be!
That the one you're looking for?
Be careful where you drop things.
Did you lie for Drew McColl about seeing Malone on that boat?
Just like you're lying about now
about putting Malone in that hole in the ground?
It's a lot of years for perjury, Benny.
Benny Ray was an informer on your payroll.
We knew Malone was guilty.
So when Benny came out and said he'd seen him
on the Unst ferry, the fact he was an informer was irrelevant.
No, not in the eyes of the law, it's not!
Sometimes you have to take a chance to get the right result.
Is that what you were doing when you persuaded Malone's mother to pressure him into confessing?
That's ridiculous! You did what you had to do to get the conviction,
and hoped you wouldn't live to regret it.
I don't think you regret a thing.
Don't know how you can say that to me.
If I hadn't screwed up the Malone case,
he would never have been released.
And I wouldn't be looking for a picture to use for my daughter's memorial service.
Norway called. They've found Hagan.
I thought I'd nip home and grab a bag.
Unless you'd rather go with Sandy?
Er, no, no. Hagan's yours.
As long as you're up to it...
The flight's at seven.
OK, then, I'll meet you at the airport.
Thomas Malone? In the house? Really?
Aye, for two seconds.
She's a target because of your job, you do know that?
Who gave her the idea to volunteer at the Wildlife Sanctuary?
Alan Killick doesn't have an alibi for the night Sally died, did you know that?
You think Alan was involved?
I'm not sure, but thanks to you, him and Cass are bosom buddies.
I didn't mean for that to happen,
I was just trying to get her out of the house.
No, I know.
But she's all grown up and she's done listening to us,
and we're going to have to get used to it.
It was easier when she wasnae here.
Let me try and talk to her.
Aye, all right.
Tosh, I cannot come with you. Sorry something's come up with Cassie.
You're going to meet a Detective Strom
and she's going to point you in the direction of Hagan.
All we need to know is
if Hagan was the guy that Jo saw talking to Sally.
Yeah. Don't worry, I can handle it.
There you are.
Are you hungry?
If my dad was a killer, what does that make me, then?
You're nothing like your father.
Why are you even thinking like that?
I don't want his DNA on that scarf.
Even just the possibility that he was a killer...
..I couldn't... I couldn't bear it.
I'm going to check on Jo, see if she's OK.
Come on, Thomas, let me in!
I brought you some food.
I'm not angry about the phone!
Don't shut me out!
How was Unst?
There was no stranded seals
but there was a definite sighting of an undercover cop.
He was supposed to keep a low profile.
Yeah, well, someone needs to go back to police academy.
I know you worry about me, but you don't have to.
What's with the fancy biscuits? Does that mean I've been forgiven?
No, that means we've got a visitor on the way.
There's been a development.
Kevin Killick's DNA result came back.
It doesn't match.
What, it doesn't match the DNA on the scarf?
It's not even the same DNA as Alan Killick.
Kevin isn't Alan's father.
We have to assume that Donna knows who the father is,
and that she's aware that whoever he is
is a suspect in Lizzie's murder.
So who's she protecting?
I hate to admit it, but Drew did cross my mind.
He thinks I don't know about him and Donna, but I've known for years.
No, it's not Drew. CCRC tested his DNA.
We have to find out who that DNA belongs to, Jimmy.
Because until we do,
people are gonnae keep assuming that Malone killed Lizzie.
Have you changed your opinion about that?
Would it surprise you to hear that I'm keeping an open mind?
Nah, don't worry.
I'm just waiting on someone picking up a motor.
You on your own tonight, Benny?
