In A Ripped Dress (Bang!). Review by Julius C. Lacking.
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.
