| police procedural a bit slow
The body of a little girl is found preserved in a sealed drum at an abandoned psychiatric institute. The DCI in charged of the unit goes into labor and Commander Clare Blake comes in to take over. Two former patients Eric Thornton and John Littlewood become the prime suspects. An Irish nurse is suspected to be pregnant at the time. As they search for Eric, they collide with a rival drug investigation. Eric's sister has a doll collection that seems to be connected to the body.

This starts with an intriguing visual of a girl stuffed in a drum. It's almost artistic. The investigation is pretty standard. There are a lot of interrogations and interviews. It makes the story go a bit slow. I also don't like Eric Thornton's inner voice and hallucinations. It keeps his exchanges tiresome and slow. The material doesn't flow fast enough. It's a functional police procedural. The new characters are in flux and Blake's new right hand man needs time to develop.
