Robert Carradine's character is inspired in the chess-master Bobby Fischer. Considered the best player in the world during the 60's and 70's years, he played and won the match of the century against his Russian rival, Boris Spassky, in Iceland's capital Reikiavik in 1972. Lately he turned insane and missed from the eye public, dying finally in 2008. See more »

Like A Chess Match, Not Always Easy To Undertstand
25 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here's another one of these "Criminal Intent" shows that is very confusing for the first half and then - wham! - everything starts to fall into place and it much of it becomes clear. The writers like to do that on this show. I have found myself "lost" in the opening of many of show as four or five scenes are shown to us, all separate, and one is not quite sure what's going on.

When the dust settles, this turns out to be a Bobby Fischer-like tale, a story of an extremely paranoid former chess champion who has gone into hiding. The difference in this story, as opposed to the real-life Fischer insanity, is this case involves a murder.

It's a little too far out in spots, and Goren solves this complicated faster than a chess master could do it....but, hey, that's not untypical of this show and I'm not complaining. It was entertaining, as usual.
