An eccentric detective communicates with the dead victims in his cases.
Star Jeff Goldblum makes his typically quirky approach to characters work here, given the titular cop's penchant for conversing with the deceased. Luis Guzman is a great foil for Goldblum, and there's a nice L.A. noir vibe to the piece as well. But we can't help wondering if there aren't enough talking-to-dead-people shows on TV already.
