Taking to Twitter to praise the surprising ending, one person wrote: "Episode Four: An excellent conclusion. I never saw Janice being responsible for the murders coming, and God do I feel for poor Robin in this series. She just can't seem to get away from sleazy men, can she?"

A second person added: "#Strike I cannot get enough of this marvellously written and even better acted programme," while another tweeted: "Fabulous. Could watch it forever. Still got last book to read yet. Superb books and programme. #Strike and #Robin such brilliant acting."

It wasn't just the murderer's identity that got viewers talking, however, as many commented on the chemistry between leading man Tom Burke and his co-star Holliday Grainger, who play Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott.
