What I remember is it’s either a young lawyer or detective, working on a case. He seeks help from this older detective whose housing complex is being demolished. In the end the housing complex gets demolished but they find a dead body in one of the old man’s walls.

I keep thinking I might have seen something like this a few years ago, but my memories are fuzzy and a there are some notable differences. I wonder if I might be half-remembering an episode of a UK detective show that played in the US on PBS. I don’t watch a lot of those types of shows, but occasionally I do catch the odd episode. Are you confident in your memory that a body was discovered behind the wall at the end of the movie/show? I think I saw a TV show or movie about police called in to investigate a dead body discovered in a rundown apartment complex the night before it was to be demolished. I think the investigators found a hole in the wall, and believed the dead man was there to retrieve something before the building was demolished, and the killer took that hidden object. Possibly something valuable, but I think it might have been some item (a knife, gun, documents) that would incriminate him or someone else in some crime that occurred years earlier. The victim may have been a suspect or maybe imprisoned for the earlier crime. I think in the end, an older detective on the case was found to have been the murderer. The detective may have even lived in that unit or apartment building years earlier. I know these are the most muddled (and probably inaccurate) ramblings, but I just wondered if any of them might ring a bell. Maybe we both saw the same TV show or movie. It might help someone else, with a better memory of me, help you find the answer you are looking for.

I found it after all. It’s ‘The Stranger’ a limited series on Netflix.
