Slow yet interesting
13 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

I saw this show dubbed into english many years ago and really liked the show. The main detective was physically slow but mentally really sharp and you could see that he could out-think his younger juniors.

If you catch it on TV, you must see it. It is an interesting departure from other detective shows.
