Series 2, Episode 3 - This Cursed Hand
A missing person's case turns to murder as Frank and Lu investigate the disappearance of an Eastern European oligarch.
Failed actor Harold Hamworthy has a penchant for mischief and hogging the limelight, but when he absconds with Sebastian's tourists during a Shakespearean ghost walk, something finally upstages him - in the form of a dismembered human hand.
Harold finds himself in hot water when sinister figures Alek and Dimitri try to snatch the hand, but he manages to give them the slip. Meanwhile, Lu and Frank are hired to find missing multimillionaire, Pavel Kusk, by his wife, Anastasia.
Frank has a hunch that Pavel could be in the opulent Hotel Philomel; undercover as a bellboy, Sebastian investigates, to discover Pavel Kusk murdered - and missing a hand. With the two incidents linked, and the violent thugs hunting for Harold, Sebastian and the hand, it's a race against the clock to crack the case - who killed Pavel Kusk, and why?
