What is series 2 of Trigger Point about?

Trigger Point will return with six more episodes later this year.

At the end of series one, Lana discovered her love interest Karl Maguire was behind the bombings as he was trying to get revenge after the Government covered up an accident he was involved with in Afghanistan.

At the start of series 2, Lana returns from training Ukrainian bomb disposal teams, but she hasn’t returned to active duty.

But when she gives a routine talk to security officers from major financial institutions about the issues surrounding bomb-centred terrorism, a bomb attack takes place in the heart of the city.

Lana is closest to the incident, but is she ready to take it on?
