Of the recent mystery movies showing each Tuesday on TNT, "Good Morning, Killer" is so far the best. Catherine Bell stars as Ana Grey, an FBi officer who is investigating the case of a young woman who appears to have been kidnapped -- she's called her parents in distress, and then the connection is broken. Soon Ana and her team have put together the profile of a serial rapist who rapes and tortures his victims, and then lets them go with the words, "You won't forget me." However, one of his victims dies. They need to stop him before he strikes again.
The story is based on a novel by April Smith, which is part of a series. Therefore, we are left to wonder at the end about Ana's relationship with her boyfriend, played by Cole Hauser. Also, maybe I missed it, but the disappearance of the homeless man was unresolved. And obviously Ana's grandfather (William Devane) features more prominently in other books. It was great to see Devane again, but he didn't have much to do.
Catherine Bell, of Army Wives and JAG, does a good job and makes an attractive, strong heroine. Of the rest of the cast, James Jordan as Ray Brennan had a juicy role and made a great impression. You'll recognize several actors, including Titus Welliver from The Good Wife as well as some young newcomers.
On the whole, this series on TNT seems to be getting better.
