Scotland Yard detectives Brock and Kolla return to search for a missing girl whose artist father (signature work: Dead Puppies — cooked, canned, eaten on TV) makes her abduction the theme of his new show.
High: Objets d’art include a twitchy corpse and a meat-and-maggots bust of Princess Di.
The satire of the avant-garde is a bit broad, but Brock and Kolla’s meticulous, psychologically acute sleuthing still fascinates.
