    Thorne: Sleepyhead, has enough twists, turns, red herrings and multi-layered narrative to keep you couch-bound for its entire two hours.

    The result is intelligent if occasionally dense tales that focus on the hardest part of a detective's job, which is trying to outthink someone whose thinking is already, by definition, off-center.

    In Sleepyhead, the better of the two, someone is killing women by inducing strokes....In Scaredy Cat the crimes are just as bizarre, though the outcome is more predictable.

    Encore offers Thorne: Sleepyhead, a powerful and gripping British import starring David Morrissey as Detective Inspector Tom Thorne.

    The production has grit, yes, but for all its poking and prodding at what makes the title character and his quarry tick, Thorne never gets under your skin.

    The first film is well constructed to be unnerving; the second offers the sight of "Grey's" Dr. Yang toting a revolver. Both make for creepy-rich summer viewing.

    Thorne isn't a powerhouse like "Luther," but if you enjoy crime fiction, it's fast-paced and well-acted enough to be worth your time.
