The Swedish Wallander is better than the English Wallander.
The Broken Shore - Peter Temple is superb. Not a series. A good film of perhaps THE Australian novel.
Jack Irish - especially the last series is great - very Melbourne - Peter Temple.
Rebus - Series 2 - 4?? with Ken Stott is fantastic - not so keen on first series with that other bloke

I came to these after I'd read all the books and they didn't disappoint. The Wallander books are also about ageing and illness - in modern society - and the Swedish series at least gives a nod to this aspect.

The episode of Midsomers where he visits the tailor for a jacket is great fun.

Moss can be a good series.

The original - pioneering multiple narratives - was NYPD Blues.

Strictly speaking not "crime" although it's detective work of sorts, the original Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Smiley's People (both BBC series) are fantastic.
Yes. Also Tailor Of Panama is worth a watch.

If you like noir - Chinatown and LA Confidential.

Murder She Wrote
The Rockford Files
Matlock
TJ Hooker
Perry Mason

Whatever else is showing in your retirement home.

If we're going for movies, then Sleuth. The original, not the horrible remake with Caine taking the other side and removing all the subtlety of the character study. 

 

Not to mention:

Recently got through True Detetcive in two nights and can back up the others. If you want something long I'd reccomend the Wire though it's not exactly a crime show but has the usual detective work though it's still my favourite tv series yet.

I've got access to Nashville - haven't had time yet - but I'm told its good - not noir detective though

Having non-aluminiuml deoderant made a big difference - no sweat stains in the pits.

 

But this is on the collar, round the back of the neck. Only with some shirts - which I guess there's a reason for but I don't know it.

 

Will try the napi-san paste - though in the UK so hope there's an equivalent - and when I'm back to regular living situation will toss the affected shirts in a bucket.

While we're on unrelated subjects; I'm looking to buy a new TV. I've got about as much knowledge on this subject as 'Melbourne Man' above has on inconspicuous dress, so feel free to educate me on yer OLEDs/UHD/4K/SMART/etc...

I've got about $2500 and want something 55-60 inch. Educate me if you're that way inclined.

I'l back up the recommendation on The Wire.  Great series and they won an award for this scene and the best use of the f word + no other dialogue:

I always liked Jim's style. Might be something to do with those loud sportscoats and that Firebird.
