He's the disheveled detective, dismissed by his suspects as an erratic pest, but little do they know this keen investigator is lulling them into a false sense of security. His rumpled trench coat, bumbling speech, chomped cigar and battered Peugeot 403 convertible all help paint the portrait of a cop out of his depth, but we know it's just a matter of time before the evidence is revealed to ensure criminal conviction. Voted as one of the top TV detectives of all time, COLUMBO turned the mystery genre on its head by revealing the perpetrators of crime at the very start of each episode. It's no whodunnit! The suspense is in discovering how Columbo will eventually trick the criminal into letting their guard down and revealing key evidence.
