No current Talk conversations about this book.

A backward police department tries to catch a drug kingpin.

I have to wonder why there are more than three seasons of this show. Everything is neatly wrapped up and resolved at the end of this one. In that respect, it's more satisfying than season two - but, otherwise, not quite as good. A lot of time is spent with a boring political subplot.
