Yup, that is her. They have a daughter, a rebellious tearaway called Lau Katie Leung who has been throwing pink paint bombs at the black car of a property developer she — and a lot of other Hong Kong students — do not approve of.

That is an awful lot to hit him in not very much time. One minute he is a happy prof, well liked by his students, in spite of the bad jokes his tells them, and loved by his wife, even if she is away a lot.
The next, she is gone for ever, dead; he has got to do the thing he really does not like doing, get on a plane, to a strange place where he does not know anyone; and then he finds out he was not even her only husband. No wonder he is looking a bit frazzled. Simm is very good at being up against it. Strangers might not be the most thoughtful or nuanced of thrillers, but Simm is, as ever, very watchable.
Oh, and his phone is dead and he has forgotten to bring the charger. In fact it must have been out of power, or not switched on, for ages. Because it turns out that the message we saw Megan leaving at the beginning, her last message, was for Jonah. But it means he did not look at his phone in the time it took for the Hong Kong police to find out who she was and tell the British consulate, who told the British police, who tracked him down and sent PC Sensitive round. And then he still did not look at it in the time it took to get a flight to Hong Kong … really? I am not sure Strangers stands up to too much scrutiny.
Jonah eventually gets a pink charger in Chungking Mansions in Kowloon.

She has got herself into something … she is not sure if she will see him again … she wishes things had been different … she loves him well, that might be some sort of consolation, I guess. And then he listens to the crash, the yellow truck, remember? But then there is a gunshot. Two deaths, one for each husband, perhaps.
University lecturer Professor Jonah Mulray is heartbroken when the police arrive at his place of work to inform him that his wife, Megan, has been killed in a car crash in Hong Kong. Determined to find out what happened in her final hours, Jonah flies to Hong Kong only to be confronted by the revelation that Megan had a second husband, former cop David Chen. Jonah confronts the police with evidence confirming that Megan was murdered - namely a phone message which features an audible gunshot.
But after having his phone taken into custody as evidence, Jonah discovers the message has been edited. When Megan's corpse later disappears from the morgue, Jonah fears he may be caught in the middle of a conspiracy. David admits to knowing that Megan was murdered, having seen the bullet wound on her corpse.
Jonah discovers photos on Megan's laptop which leads him and David to a local recycling centre, where they steal a hard drive containing footage of the man driving the truck that ploughed into Megan. Jonah also finds two false passports bearing Megan's photograph.
David goes off the grid, forcing an increasingly anxious Jonah to manipulating Lau to find out where he has gone. He tracks him down to a casino in Macau , where he witnesses him handing over the hard drive containing footage of the truck driver that killed Megan to Kai Huang, a member of a known Triad family whom David was reportedly taking bribes from.
