Shows Like Top of the Lake: Missing Persons Reports

Realistic shows about missing persons (sorry, no alien abductions here); if we were on the marketing team, we'd advertise the show on the side of milk cartons, but that's just us.

Shows like Twin Peaks: Best of Noir Detective TV

Great detective shows served black, with all the grisly murders, investigators with troubled pasts and uncertain futures, and a lot of P.I.s named Jack.
