Storyline

Cigar-chomping Lieutenant Columbo's investigation into the odd death of two men flings him headlong into a mystery revolving around the long-lost loot from an unsolved bank heist. Insurance investigator Irving Krutch asks for Columbo's assistance in tracking down the pieces of a photograph that will reveal the location of the hidden millions. To do so, Columbo must go undercover in various guises to obtain the pieces from the various people who now possess them. But in the course of the investigation, more than one of these people will be murdered, and Columbo can't shake the feeling that Krutch is somehow responsible for the entire bloody business...

Columbo's Jigsaw Mystery.
28 February 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A good Columbo yarn and based on one of Ed MacBain's better 87th Precinct Mysteries called Jigsaw. The story revolves around the hunt for the loot from an old bank robbery which went disastrously wrong for the perpetrators. They were killed in a shoot out with the cops but no one knows what they did with the missing proceeds from the heist. Up steps Irving Krutch, years later, with a 'piece' of a photograph (cut jigsaw style) which supposedly shows where the missing cash is stashed! He enlists the help of the law in his quest but is he all he claims to be? Who will find the other pieces first? The cops or the bad guys? Great stuff for Columbophiles.
