Series overview
 
Starring and executive produced by Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actor Rob Lowe, Wild Bill is a fish-out-of-water crime drama following high-flying US police chief Bill Hixon, who is appointed Chief Constable in Boston, Lincolnshire. Landing in the UK with his teenage daughter Kelsey in tow, Bill is ready to tackle the county’s crime figures, armed with a range of statistics and algorithms with every intention of getting in and out as quickly as possible. However, Bill soon discovers the people of Boston are just as smart-mouthed, cynical and difficult to impress as he is, and the man who’s spent his life keeping the messiness of human intimacy at arm’s length is reluctantly propelled into frontline policing and forced to reconsider his relationship with those closest to him. 
 
Episode 5
 
Suspicion falls on members of the immigrant workforce after a suitcase containing the body of farm owner, Darren Bailey is pulled from the river.
 
Bill discovers that the farm had been used to launder criminal proceeds through the clever accounting of the victim’s much younger Slovenian girlfriend, Lubica, who has been made sole owner of the farm’s assets. This makes her a key suspect, particularly after it’s revealed that her and Darren had an argument on the night he went missing.
 
However, with many of Darren’s employees seeming happy at the news of his demise and stories coming to light about how he has squeezed them at every opportunity, it isn’t an open and shut case.
