In A Ripped Dress (Bang!). Review by Julius C. Lacking.
Whether you are a fan of quirky detectives and wacky coincidences, or in-depth investigations with detailed forensic analysis, Acorn Media probably has a British mystery set that will appeal to you. Joe Frietze is here to take a look at four of their newest releases.
Robbie Coltrane stars as the psychologist who always cracks the case, while alienating everyone who cares about him. Joe Frietze wants your badge on his desk in one hour.
Are you tired of detective shows where the lead is a mess of addictions, neuroses, and failed relationships? If so, Joe Frietze recommends this trio of British mysteries with a different spin on the genre. Check out The Last Detective, DNA, and Midsomer Murders.
Ken Stott returns as the hard-drinking, hard-smoking, DI John Rebus for a second set of mysteries, based on the books by Ian Rankin. This series sees Rebus dealing with complex ciphers, underworld bosses, duplicitous businessmen, and dead cats, along with the requisite murders in each episode. Joe Frietze gives his best good cop/bad cop.
