typical british cop show

Quick witted lead actor jack shepherd as chief superintendent investigating 2 deaths with the subtlety of a sledge hammer in scenic penzance, cornwall, united kingdom .... moves too slow due to a lot of re-interviews by people lying deliberately about everything ....cornwall is a beautiful place to be investigating murders
