What is Before We Die about? 

Lesley Sharp returns as Bristol-based detective DI Hannah Laing in the second season of the drama, which is based on the Swedish series of the same name.

The first series ended with Hannah trying to uncover the leak in the police department who is feeding information to the criminal gang, the Mimicas.

On what viewers can expect from season two, Lesley said: “Someone within the police department is feeding information to the Mimicas, and at the end of series one, she is tasked with finding out who that is.

“But it’s getting to a point where it’s just going on and on and they’re not getting any closer, so the decision is made to sideline it, which means she is back working closely again with her old mate, Billy (Vincent Regan). They are utilising all the facilities he can get his mitts on, because he doesn’t work within the aegis of the police so they can go slightly more rogue.”
