“There are lines,” claims Mark Strong's intense cop, Frank, to fellow officer Joe (Lennie James). Except there appear to be none in Detroit, the rundown setting for Fox's polished 10-part remake of Channel 4's gripping 2006 crime drama, in which Strong played an uncompromising Scottish detective. Here, in the same role, he's an equally tough Detroit cop persuaded by a slithery Joe to kill. Strong and James convince, but it's the seemingly lawless Detroit setting that compels most.
