​A high-flying young record producer is gunned down outside his pricey London home after returning from a Christmas Eve celebration with his glamorous wife and two-year-old son.

The victim, Flamur Beqiri, a brother of one of the stars of Real Housewives of Cheshire, is quickly identified as a kingpin in an international drugs gang.

A police investigation leads straight back to Sweden where an underworld has gone to war and a Dubai-based criminal is hungry for revenge.

Nicola Tallant is joined by journalist Chris Summers, editor of total crime UK, who covered the trial at Southwark Crown Court, where a hitman was handed a minimum sentence of 25 years and where the fallout of a gangland crime was laid bare.
