Storyline

This TV drama tells the true story of a bungled and obstructed police manhunt for a serial killer who could and should have been imprisoned after his first crime. Two young RCMP officers, each seperately investigating a rape and murder, cuptured the culprit, but because of legal red tape, jurisdictional chaos and incompetence, the suspect was allowed to continue his rampage until he was finally arrested and imprisoned - several murders later.

Fascinating and Disturbing
14 September 2003 | by (Alberta, Canada) – See all my reviews

A compelling production. "The Investigation" showed how unprepared Canada and the R.C.M.P. were to handle a serial killer and rapist. True to their motto, the Mounties did get their man. Nicholas Lea is brilliant as always and Lochlyn Munro plays Corporal Darryll Kettles brilliantly. 10/10, here's hoping we see more of this great Canadian,home grown specials.
