Sasha Mitchell: The People’s Detective

‘She is really quite dogged and ambitious. She is determined to have her own style and be different. It’s important to her politically—as a feminist—to remain a person in her own right…’

Sasha Mitchell plays Detective Sergeant Karen Malahyde: “She is really quite dogged and ambitious. She is determined to have her own style and be different. It’s important to her politically - as a feminist - to remain a person in her own right.

She always wants Wexford’s approval and she reads voraciously, so she’s able to make the literary connections and have a decent conversation with him. She and Burden will never hit it off as they just don’t understand each other.”
