A noted cop is murdered, and Annika investigates police corruption
22 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Lifetime" is quite a tense little episode, at least the equal of the first entry in this series.

The spotlight is on police corruption and the tendency of police to exploit their positions of power and pull together to cover up crimes committed by their own.

What sets the ball rolling here is the murder of a noted cop. Suspicion falls on his wife who was present and is in such a state of mental confusion that her account is inoperable for quite some time. Their son is missing too, adding another dimension.

Annika and mate are spatting about child custody. Their children and their great love for them are pulling them together to some extent.

Adding a lot to this episode are a large role for a policewoman, and a corrupt menacing police chief. Annika is directly involved in some suspenseful action. The story is quite tense.

These movies are definitely TV-movies in their extensive use of close-ups, but they do not look cheap even though they may not use lots of sets and set-ups.

My only negative thought on the scripts is that they are long on diversion and short on logical deduction. They move forward by quick introductions of new information and people, but there is almost no time when anyone, Annika included, takes the time to figure out what might be going on beyond the immediate one thing leading to another thing. This fast movement, however, is also one of the aspects of these films that sets them apart and works for them favorably.

Several of the supporting actors are making a mark, even if I do not know all their names yet. The news boss, played by Leif Andree, is notable. Annika confers with a buddy female reporter who smokes. She scores. The editor is another good support, and so is the younger fellow who likes to needle Annika sometimes. The ensemble cast does some good group acting.
