Poor old Rebus is starting to look a bit forlorn. He has no power in the police force as he is retired and he drinks and smokes too much for the modern sensibility. I know he is supposed to be a maverick but I think Rankin needs to bring character into the 21st century, put him on a team, maybe like R.E.D. and give him some clout. The plot was terrific as always but was this really just a wake for Rebus?
