The great Fiona Shaw’s performance of this third outing for the Thursday Murder Club is a multilayered joy. Her technique is impeccable as she delivers the deliciously funny dialogue of Osman’s elderly characters. Just for instance, late in the plot, sweet, fluttery little Joyce, who already has a Ukrainian money-laundering czar hiding out in her spare room, finds a 6’7” Swedish thug in her house aiming a gun at her and promising to shoot. Her unflappable reaction is so unexpected and disarming—especially in Shaw’s performance—that you laugh out loud. But then, in spite of the tightly made and hard-driving plot, the whole production is a comic marvel. New to the series? Start here; start anywhere. You’ll catch right up. Huge kudos to all. B.G.
