Aidan Quinn Previews Never-Before-Seen Case on Prime Suspect

by at . Comments

As Lieutenant Kevin Sweeney, Aidan Quinn has an unparalleled view of Prime Suspect. The man knows what's going down in his precinct.

Therefore, viewers can trust the veteran actor when he tells them to tune in for tonight's "Great Guy, Yet: Dead." Why?

"It features a case you haven't seen anywhere before," Quinn told me on the phone. "It's plucked from the annals of a real-life homicide on the streets."

Prime Suspect is growing into a hit for NBC, which ordered six additional episodes of the drama this week.

Through the first few weeks of the freshman series, Quinn's lieutenant has appeared to have a soft spot for Maria Bello's Jane Timoney, but that's not exactly how the star sees it.

"He's simply interested in detectives that can get the job done," Quin says, adding that he doesn't view the other officers' treatment of Jane as typical sexism, either: "She's a newbie, that's key. These guys have been there for a long time and they all had to pay their due. As a blonde woman coming in? Yes, that makes it worse for her."

For a full review, visit TV Fanatic soon after tonight's episode of Prime Suspect airs.
