A different beginning, but with the same predictable ending
16 May 2003 | by (salinas, ca) – See all my reviews

The good news is that Columbo is such a good and talented detective that he can figure out in a short time who the killer is. The bad news is that we have seen him so many times leading his suspects into an entrapment that by the second half of the movie we can predict how he is going to solve his case. The conversation he had with the therapist practically gives it away.

Helen Shaver's performance is great as a mentally disturbed widow. But Peter Falk was not convincing as a "devastated" widower.

Overall, it is a better than average Columbo.
