Vera – Ein ganz spezieller Fall

Vera – Ein ganz spezieller Fall

Im Mittelpunkt der neuen Krimireihe nach den Romanen der britischen Autorin Ann Cleeves steht die Ermittlerin DCI Vera Stanhope. Besessen von ihrer Arbeit löst sie mit sarkastischem Witz, Mut und List Verbrechen. Dabei steht Vera ihr Vertrauter und langjähriger Kollege DS Joe Ashworth, gespielt von David Leon, als ihre rechte Hand zur Seite. Sie vertraut Joe blind, und er unterstützt sie bei ihren unkonventionellen Ermittlungsmethoden. Gemeinsam lösen sie in vier fesselnden Krimis schwierige Fälle mit großer Begeisterung und beispielloser Professionalität. Vera, die sich sehr in ihre Fälle hineinkniet, ist bei ihrem Vater aufgewachsen, der wenig Zeit für sie hatte. So musste sie sich schon früh selbst beweisen und entwickelte dabei ihren eigenen Sinn für Gerechtigkeit. Zu Veras Team gehört neben Julie Armstrong, Richard Short und dem Pathologen Billy Catwright auch DC Holly Lawson, die Jüngste im Team. Holly fühlt sich von Vera oftmals schlecht behandelt. Doch Vera will nur, dass Holly sich noch mehr anstrengt, denn sie sieht in ihr ein echtes Talent schlummern.

Als Julie Armstrong nach einem ihrer seltenen Ausgeh-Abende mit ihrem Freund Gary Wright in Newcastle nach Hause zurückkehrt, findet sie ihren 15-jährigen Sohn ermordet vor. Luke wurde erdrosselt und in eine mit Wasser gefüllte und mit Wildblumen bestreute Badewanne gelegt, während seine Schwester Laura im Nebenzimmer ruhig schlief. Detective Chief Inspector Vera Stanhope und Sergeant Joe Ashworth finden im Zuge ihrer Ermittlungen schnell heraus, dass es eine Verbindung zu einem weiteren Todesfall gibt. Vor einiger Zeit ist Thomas Sharp, Lukes bester Freund, beim Spielen im Meer ertrunken. Es war ein Unglücksfall, wie sich damals herausgestellt hatte. Kurz darauf wird eine zweite Leiche, die der schönen jungen Lehrerin Lily Marsh, in einem Gezeitentümpel am Strand entdeckt, auf dessen Wasser ebenfalls Blumen gestreut wurden. Lilys Leichnam wurde von einer Gruppe von Vogelbeobachtern, darunter der Hochschullehrer Peter Calvert und seine Frau Felicity, entdeckt. DCI Vera Stanhope und ihr Assistent Joe Ashworth vermuten eine Verbindung zwischen Lily Marsh und den Vogelbeobachtern. Während ihrer Recherchen macht Vera dann aber eine entscheidende Entdeckung, die die Ermittlungen in eine andere Richtung lenkt.

Jeanie Long behauptet, zu Unrecht verurteilt in einem Gefängnis an der Küste von Northumberland einzusitzen. Ihr wird vorgeworfen, die Tochter ihres ehemaligen Lebensgefährten, Abigail Mantel genannt Abby, ermordet zu haben. Sie war in der Nähe ihres Wohnortes auf einem Feld erdrosselt aufgefunden worden. Als Jeanie für eine Routineuntersuchung in ein Krankenhaus gebracht werden soll, flieht sie und sucht ihren Vater Michael auf, der jedoch nichts mehr von ihr wissen will. Am Boden zerstört läuft Jeanie in Selbstmordabsicht vor einen Bus. Zufällig gerät DCI Vera Stanhope in die Ermittlungen am Unfallort. Sie stellt sich dabei die Frage, ob es wirklich nur ein Selbstmord war oder nicht doch mehr dahinter steckt. Als Jeanie Longs Selbstmord in die Schlagzeilen kommt, tauchen neue Beweise auf, die sie hinsichtlich des Mordes an der 15-Jährigen Abigail entlasten. In den 11 Jahren ihrer Haft beteuerte Jeanie stets ihre Unschuld, vor allem ihrem Bewährungshelfer Robert Winter gegenüber. Als ein Entlastungszeuge für Jeanie auftaucht und kurz darauf ermordet wird, nimmt der Fall eine überraschende Wendung. In ihrem unnachahmlichen Stil ergründet DCI Vera Stanhope mit ihrem Team Geheimnisse und deckt Lügen einer kleinen Gemeinde auf, bis schließlich die schreckliche Wahrheit ans Tageslicht kommt.

A murder at a remote cottage in Northumberland takes DCI Vera Stanhope back to a place full of childhood memories and reminds her of an unsolved case from earlier in her career. Delving into the local politics surrounding a controversial proposal to dig a quarry, she and her team find motives in the unlikeliest of places - until they realise that the truth could be hidden within the land itself.

A woman is murdered in a hedgerow but her son survives the attack, only to fall beneath the ice of a frozen pond as he makes his escape.

As the investigation into the mother's killing unfolds, Vera finds a kindred spirit in the boy and comes to realise the key to solving the case lies deep in his memory.

Vera's reunion with her first-ever sergeant, Stuart Macken, occurs under tragic circumstances when his house is petrol-bombed. Stuart is badly burned by the attack and his 18-year-old daughter Stella is left fighting for her life in intensive care. Vera is shocked to see that Stuart is a shadow of the man she knew 20 years before and, when her investigation uncovers unpleasant revelations about his personal life, she is faced with some long-buried memories of her own.

Vera investigates the case of a murdered social worked named Jenny Lister, who was universally considered to have been principled and popular. However, in an overworked and understaffed social work system, a notorious case involving the death of a child seems to hold the key to solving the killing. As Vera pursues the truth, she discovers the real secret at the heart of Jenny's death - and the killer who will stop at nothing to keep it hidden

The investigation into the murder of 29-year-old Niall is made difficult by those closest to him, who seem intent on obscuring the facts, and it is not until the body of a drug dealer washes up on a beach that the dreadful truth begins to emerge. While coping with revelations of her own, Vera sifts through evidence of the grief, love and addiction that characterised Niall's life as she tries to find out why someone wanted him dead.

DCI Stanhope and DS Ashworth investigate a suspicious death in an army barracks, aided by Joe and an enthusiastic member of the military police.

Vera delves into the past of extreme sports enthusiast Gideon Frane after he plunges from a cliff in a ball of flames. A scan of the files reveals a long list of stalking complaints against an ex, and an anonymous letter to the victim spelling out Burn in Hell is linked to one of her friends. Aided by DC Shepherd and the newly appointed DC Edwards, the team tries to track down Gideon's old gang to uncover a lifetime of bullying and an unexpected story of rough justice.

Vera and Joe ares brought in to investigate when a former Met police officer is stabbed to death outside a nightclub in Newcastle. The team initially suspects a crime of passion after it emerges the victim had recently rekindled his affair with his childhood sweetheart, whose husband has a history of violence. However, Vera uncovers evidence pointing to a more complex case involving inside information and the hostile takeover of a brewery. What did the deceased find out that cost him his life?

Vera investigates the death of a pensioner found stabbed on a train at the height of rush hour. The case has a huge impact on Joe's home life when his daughter is named as a key witness, and he struggles to maintain a professional distance.

The detective is called in when David Kenworthy, the son of a prominent local family, is found murdered on the beach at Whitley Bay. A witness spotted arcade owner Larry Crowe arguing with David on the night of the killing, and a search of the suspect's property uncovers a bloodied baseball bat. However, Larry has a cast-iron alibi and it's clear he wasn't the only person the victim met that night. A second death then leaves Vera facing mounting pressure to crack the case, and struggling to answer the question of why David was drawn to the seafront on the evening of his father's retirement.

The body of a man killed by a single gunshot wound is discovered on the moors and a burnt-out truck containing the remains of a deer is found a mile away. Joe is convinced the case is a poaching war gone wrong, but for Vera, the truth is never that straightforward. Delving into the victim's story, she unearths a sad childhood in the country and a troubled life in the city, scraping by as a novelist.

Could his death be linked to a dispute over land?

The detective investigates the mysterious death of businessman John Shearwood, found floating in the water under the Gateshead Millennium Bridge when he was supposed to be on a golf trip to Ireland.

Chief Revenue investigator Owen Preece reveals John's business manager Mark Donovan has been running an alcohol scam through their haulage firm and the deceased had agreed to offer information in exchange for immunity from prosecution.
