===> **Although he doesn't start off this way, Rocco Klein. A darker version of Andy Sipowicz from NYPD Blue. Although this was already building up. He showed no regard for evidence, much like Andy and was bent on investigating at any cost, similar to how Andy would do it. The main point, and the main difference between him and Andy, is when he tries to arrange Rodney into trying to hurt Strike in some sick attempt to get Strike to fess up, thinking he killed Darryl Adams which fails because he doesn't confess. Not even Andy ever turns evil.
