Davidson is the the senior investigating officer of an unsolved murder, "whose unconventional conduct raises suspicions at AC-12".

Series leads Martin Compston, Vicky McClure and Adrian Dunbar are also confirmed to return.

Compston and McClure - who play Steve Arnott and Kate Fleming - tweeted their delight at the news.

Meanwhile, series writer and showrunner Jed Mercurio wrote:

"Everyone involved in #LineofDuty is thrilled Kelly Macdonald is joining us for Series 6, playing AC-12’s most enigmatic adversary yet." 

Last week, Jed tweeted a snap with the season 6 team at dinner "nervously awaiting the arrival of secret guest stars".
