Crime Story

1 9 8 6 – 1 9 8 8 (USA)

The saga of a Chicago police detective’s efforts to stop young mobster Ray Luca (Anthony Denison) ruthlessly rising through the ranks of organised crime during the 1960s.

On hand to stem the criminal element is Lieutenant Mike Torello (Dennis Farina, a former real-life detective in the burglary division of the Chicago Police Department) of the Major Crime Unit, who is cut from the same no-nonsense cloth as Eliot Ness from The Untouchables and Lt. Frank Ballinger in M Squad.

Stephen Lang plays dedicated prosecutor David Abrams, a lawyer who is the son of a former gangster.

Later episodes were set in Las Vegas.
