Jimmy is an ex-cop turned insurance investigator whose cunning and insight are well-suited to the business of exposing con men and fraudsters. With his police training, he's able to take on any case, no matter how dangerous. Fresh off a divorce and a breakup with his colleague and mistress, Jimmy still hasn't learned when to shut his wandering eyes and turn off his rakish charm. As he struggles to rebuild his family, keeping them safe from the perils of his work proves to be his ultimate test.

Not great but I liked it. Still better than what is produced here in the US as tv "entertainment".

Kevin Whately again plays the everyman with just a little bit more savvy and persistence! In my opinion, not as bad as reported by other patrons, but certainly not up to "Inspector Lewis" standard. I liked the office staff and other investigator who does some of the dirty work. Not as crazy about Jimmy's family plotlines, but worth a rental.

What a shame, Kevin Whatley is wasted here. Peak Practice, Morse, Lewis, The English Patient, etc.

Just watched the first episode, after which I couldn't justify investing more time. The concept behind the series is promising, but that's about it. Poor 'Lewis' from the Morse saga has to say one impossible line after another, and the dialogue generally fails to reach 'Coronation Street' levels. I got the impression that the producers chose the locations first and then told the writers to figure out a screenplay for those places -- in this case Amsterdam and the international flower auction in Alsmeer (endless chase scene on dueling flower carts!). Perhaps it improves in subsequent episodes, but I'll never know.
