The Knife Trick Collection contains another six episodes of the Scottish based crime drama series.

Safer: A campaigner against domestic violence is found clubbed to death.

Homesick: A Polish immigrant is executed on a building site, sparking fears of ethnic cleansing.

Crossing the Line: A couple are found in a bricked up mine shaft having died from severe head injuries.

Cold Reader: A psychic helps with the investigation of the kidnapping of a young student.

Grass: One of Robbie’s informers is found with a bullet in his head. Could Robbie be to blame?

The Knife Trick: A man is stabbed to death in front of 30 trainee police officers.

This collection represents six of the show's seven episodes from the latest series (25) which was broadcast between 3 November 2008 and 19 July 2009. The only missing episode is So Long Baby.

As well as the murders, there are more personal issues for the team. In this collection DCI Matt Burke seems to become more and more of a boss you wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of, DS Jackie Reid has to flirt with someone who once had a crush on her in order to get some evidence examined, and DI Robbie Ross's sexual promiscuity gets the team in trouble.

For fans of the series this is an essential purchase.
