Prime Suspect Review: "Great Guy, Yet: Dead"

"Great Guy, Yet: Dead" wasn’t the best outing for Prime Suspect.

Which is rather unfortunate considering Joelle Carter from Justified was playing the Louise, the wife of Tony the victim. Sadly, none of her considerable talent was used, rather she was relegated to tears, denials, potential adultery, and getting on Jane’s nerves.
