Further details

Chief Commissioner Cameron Miekelson furthers his dream of becoming a best-selling Tartan Noir crime-writer, attending an auction alongside one of Scotland's greatest novelists, Ian Rankin. The Chief believes the crime writer could learn a thing or two from a real-life crime fighter and offers-up plenty of creative suggestions to Rankin.

Always ready to expect the unexpected, city cops PC Jack McLaren and PC Sarah Fletcher rush to the open outdoors in pursuit of a miscreant inside an inflatable zorb. This young man has breached his bail conditions but McLaren and Fletcher are there to remind him - he can roll but he can't hide from the long arm of the law.

Knights of the Road, PC's Singh and McKirdy turn firefighters to extinguish a dangerous BBQ car boot inferno and sample some delicious sausages on their crime fighting journey while Maggie Le Beau breaks loose from her headset as she works a shift at the police museum.

Elsewhere, rural cops McIntosh and MacKay make a surprising discovery on a routine shift when they pull over a dominatrix on a date; Officer Karen is on hand when local man Bobby brings in a bag of dangerous looking weapons; and Volunteer Officer Ken Beattie does his best to sort out every single public complaint possible when he represents the Scot Squad at a community council meeting.
