Set deep in the Scottish Borders, Marten Claridge's mean streets may not be those of grim procedurals set in dreich innercities populated by a relentless parade of hard-talking hardons but that doesn't mean his quiet Border lanes don't shudder with a violence spawned in the shadows of our worst urban nightmares. Mean streets wear many guises but the motives for murder never change.
