Reg Wexford may not be the most dynamic detective of all, but when it comes to dogged patience, Wexford is the top cop. Shake hands forever displays his capabilities perfectly. It's not a whodunnit is such, as the identity of the killer is pretty obvious, and not exactly challenged.

Tom Wilkinson is very good, he has some terrific scenes with George Baker. I must heap praise on Baker himself, he always seemed to play ruthless Government officials, and shady villains, his role here is rugged, but heart felt. He has some great scenes where he's holding off being seduced.

Once again I'm greatful to the German distribution Company for releasing it, if anyone's looking, please release a Sleeping life on dvd, it's a great story.

I like this one very much, satisfying. 8/10
