Just as exciting and ingeniously put together as the previous four seasons, with a compelling, complex plot and a lot of nail-biting moments. Here and there the events are not exactly believable and you can certainly question the motivation of certain main characters, but in the end this is still very good. Stephen Graham is a welcome new face in the cast and the lead role of Adrian Dunbar (whose character is going to have to take a beating this season) is great. In any case, I am far from tired of this superior series.

Initially watched the last episode with half an eye - the last three quarters of an hour attentively.

Despite the strong acting, ditto direction and what not more, it is mainly pretended that the Art of Manipulating the Viewer (dKvhMvdK™) is mastered to perfection... I doubt it.

For example, ep.6: the pollen. This is found on the kickback that Hastings received (against his sent, which was featured in an earlier episode). However, that says nothing at all (apart from the fact that pollen from any flower can be found in all kinds of places) about his possible involvement. Then the lady sitting next to him (I don't know what position she has for a moment, and that doesn't matter to my reasoning) who suddenly shows the validity of the obtained evidence (the [spoiler= 157840]bribe with the pollen) questions... Hasting's lawyer missed it , and the prosecution had missed it (and her assistant was forgot to report, or whatever...)...yes, sure...

(of course Hastings has been made a suspect several times in the meantime, among other things due to the scenes in which he slammed his laptop or took his hard drive to the reliable, local hard-disk destroyer almost simultaneously with the interactions with the 'real H' ... sure)

And then also a open ending... no, I almost feel like buying the entire series on DVD on blu-ray to then mercilessly file the entire series again, but I blame the vodka and my fact-fuck nature for now and give this season a gracious 5.
