Another excellent Istanbul investigation in the company of Ikmen and co, with the added twist that Mehmet’s now 16 year old son is staying with him for a fortnight. Handily, for not-natural-parent, an old case of Mehmet’s resurfaces when a TV star is found murdered at home, along with the husband of his convicted murderer.

Some ongoing plot lines surface too – Syrian refugees, Mehmet’s love life, the djinn in the kitchen.
