Viewers will be pleased to hear the show, which is made up of six episodes, is available to watch in its entirety now on iPlayer.
This means viewers do not have to wait until the weekend for the next instalment if they find themselves hooked.
The series previously aired on UKTV’s Alibi in August 2021 and will return to the channel for its second season later this year.
The synopsis for the first episode reads: “On her first day in the new role, Annika and the team are called in to solve the murder of a man found in the Clyde, a harpoon piercing his head.”
It appears each episode will focus on a different murder case, with episode two explaining: “When a body is found on a boat in the Clyde, the case takes the team to the Isle of Bute.
“Evidence points to a jilted lover, but as the team investigate, a darker secret starts to emerge.”
PBS took part in a question and answer session with star Nicola, who said of her direct-to-camera segments: “On the first day, I kept stopping and laughing.
“It felt so wrong. But by the end, I was so into it, I was flicking looks at the camera all the time.
“I’m very worried about my next job now – ‘why does she keep looking down the lens?’ It might have ruined me for the future!”
Annika airs on BBC One on Saturdays from 9.15pm, with the whole series on iPlayer.
