SHETLAND viewers have been left raging 'what a load of rubbish!' as they slammed the 'weird' new series.
The investigation into Ellen Quinn's murder was continued in last night's show.
Ruth and Tosh (Alison O'Donnell) were convinced they had found their key suspect in Tom Knox (Dylan Blore).
When Ellen's body was removed from the hospital, Tom had a strong alibi thanks to new evidence connecting plummer Peter Ayre (Sandy Grierson) to her death.
As they approached his residence to speak with him, they noticed Ellen's hospital tag and noticed a fire flickering in the distance outside.
As they got closer, they were left shocked by what they witnessed.
