Canadian drama 'Cardinal' follows a (middle-aged, male) detective - the silent, loner type - as he investigates a serial killing. So far, so familiar - but the twist is that he's suspected of corruption, and his own partner is actually investigating him. It's actually nicely done, and mostly in a low-key manner - think 'Fargo', though without the comic undertone. But it's also hard to feel so strongly for a character to keeps his own cards quite so close to his chest, and the final resolution is somewhat underwhelming, although in six shortish episodes, it doesn't outstay its welcome.
