Victim Murderer

Plot:

Columbo's stalking a killer. But what he doesn't know is that the real murderer may be someone on his own investigating team. Peter Falk reprises his role as the crafty Lieutenant Columboin this film, which marks "Columbo's" 25th anniversary on network television. In "Columbo: A Trace of Murder," the wily detective questions an overbearing millionaire, Clifford Calvert ("Northern Exposure's" Barry Corbin), a fellow cigar aficionado, who's accused of murdering a business rival. But things get complicated when two unlikely people, the police forensic scientist on Columbo's own investigation team (David Rasche of the new Bette Midler film, "That Old Feeling") and Calvert's unhappy wife, Kathleen (actress Shera Danese, Peter Falk's real-life wife), know more about the case -- and each other -- than they should; and a tiny piece of evidence -- a cigar stub-- leaves Columbo puzzled.
