    Same goes for all the murder mysteries (Murder She Wrote, Columbo etc), these are not quintessential cop shows.

    All episodes I've ever seen of Murder she wrote and Columbo is about finding out the truth behind a crime. Twin Peaks was a whole other thing. A big cast with many storylines going on at once.

    I also wouldn't consider True Detective a typical crime-solving story.

    Given how many crimes and illegal things they all committed through only 3 seasons...aside from the CSI-like shots they used to use and re-use...

    I should have mentioned McMillan and Wife. Also one of the better variations on the Thin Man formula.

    Committed crimes, not solving them. Bit of a difference, no?
