I give, how do I start Riften's quests? (major spoilers)

I'm trying to play as a good character and take down the Black-Briar family and the Thieves' Guild, but I've spent hours and hours trying all sorts of things without being able to advance that plotline. I can do quests to get into the Thieves' Guild or get in tight with the corrupt family head, but I can't seem to do anything to expose them or help Mjoll.

I've found bodies in their cellar, contracts to kill people in their name, orders to frame vendors, and all sorts of other things, but I just can't seem to advance anything with Mjoll. Could someone give me a hint, point me in the right direction?

Hate to do a shameless bump, but I'm still having no luck. I shut down a Skooma trade and got in close with the Jarl, who sold me a house, and I hunted down a sword for Mjoll and got her as a companion.

Still, can't seem to figure out anything to do with Maven Black Briar and her clan, or taking down the thieves' guild or anything like that. The townsfolk are miserable and always talking about it, I can't believe we're simply stuck letting thugs run the place!

I'm having the same problem. I talked to the Jarl's Bodyguard Unmid and he has a few conversation options saying if he had more men he'd go down and root them out. Thing is he never gives me a quest to do so. I'm wondering if its a bug or if I need to do something else. Wondering if there isn't an option to do it or just heading down to the Ratway and kill them all anyway.

Maybe I'll try running down there later to take out the guild myself, see how that goes!
