Trivia

The main plot is inspired by the case of Patrick Mahon, who murdered his pregnant lover Emily Kaye near Eastbourne in 1924. He rented a bungalow, murdered Emily Kaye and dismembered her body there, and invited another woman (Ethel Duncan) to spend the Easter weekend with him while Emily Kaye's remains were in a locked bedroom in the bungalow.

Taut police procedural
1 February 2003 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Despite the presence of Jack Warner as a senior policeman, the world of "Jigsaw" is a far cry from the cosy atmosphere of "Dixon of Dock Green". Effective camerawork makes Brighton a faintly sinister setting for this murder mystery. The standard of acting is generally high, (although I found Yolande Donlan's performance a little overwrought for my taste) and a strong script from Guest ensures that the detailed police investigation contains enough action (and unexpected revelations) to hold the viewer's interest to the very end.
