Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
After the muddled and anticlimactic conclusion of Prime Suspect 2, series creator Lynda LaPlante returned to the writer's desk to restore the luster to her brainchild. The result is Prime Suspect 3, one of the series' finest efforts, a dark and complex mystery full of operatic pathos and procedural detail. Typically fine in her signature role as Jane Tennison, Helen Mirren crams more emotion into the lighting of a single cigarette than the cast of most American detective shows can manage in 22 episodes. As in the original installment, Tom Bell provides a smarmy foil in the form of snide Sgt. Bill Otley. David Thewlis' thuggish pimp may make an over-the-top villain, but the celebrated character actor achieves a twisted Dickensian menace. As usual with Prime Suspect, the real chills come from the less obvious bad guys, whose identities are revealed only in fits and starts. Its dark subject matter may account for some of Prime Suspect 3's riveting power, but complex writing and finely tuned acting supply the balance.
