Wait. You've never seen PRIME SUSPECT? The original BBC one that pretty much invented the contemporary police procedural? Wow.

This is the thing about Prime Suspect (the original show that is) that changes over the course of the show's multi-decade-long run. Originally, it's not a mystery show. It's quite literally a *procedural*. In the first season, they know within half an hour who they think did it and the rest of the show is just them gathering enough evidence to bring him in. By the final, it's more of a mystery show, if perhaps the most emotionally brutal and bleak mystery show outside of The Wire season four.
