The second series of Lynne Truss's hugely popular BBC Radio 4 comedy thriller. Inspector Steine - the amiable, unworldly detective who refuses to believe in Brighton's criminal underworld - returns for another six episodes.

It is 1957 and, as the series opens, all crime has stopped along the South Coast. But Mrs. Groynes - the cockney charlady who is actually a criminal mastermind - is desperate to get back in business, and a performance at the Hippodrome gives her an idea.

A day out in a vintage car turns out to be highly eventful, and Brunswick is kept busy organising a police open day featuring a range of criminal exhibits and going undercover as a careers master in a girls' school.

Meanwhile, Steine meets the mysterious Lord Melamine - and finds his life in danger...

Michael Fenton Stevens stars as Inspector Steine, with guest performances from Janet Ellis, Nicholas Le Provost and Mark Heap.
