A shady cop from The Dark Knight is coming to CBS’ The Mentalist.

Actress Monique Gabriela Curnen, who played one of Gotham City officers on The Joker’s payroll, has joined the crime drama in a recurring role. Curnen will play Tamsin Wade, a tough agent who works in the gang division of the CBI and a police tactical team.

The Mentalist ratings improved on Sunday for the show’s recent 100th episode, which showed how Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) first joined the CBI.
