It may be a glimpse at what to expect with this sequel).

It should be absolutely no secret to anyone reading S&A that we love the BBC detective series Luther, which stars Idris Elba. It's the kind of series that we wish existed, and was grown right here, Stateside, on American TV (although Luther does air on BBC America, and BET did recently air a marathon of the series on its cable TV channel).
