TV’s Hottest Homicide Detectives

There are plenty of kinds of cops on TV, but the best ones are homicide detectives, the police who track down killers. It might be hard work, but these 15 homicide detectives make it look easy and very appealing.


#15 Christopher Meloni as Det. Elliot Stabler, Law and Order: SVU

His character might have a bit of a temper, but that rebellious, bad boy streak is what makes Stabler such a beloved character .


#14 Kathryn Erbe as Det. Alexandra Eames, Law and Order: Criminal Intent

Partnering with Goren can’t be easy, but as Detective Eames, Erbe makes it look easy and adds a classy elegance to the series.


#13 Eric Christian Olsen as Det. Marty Deeks, NCIS: Los Angeles

Originally the liaison between the NCIS team and the LAPD, this flirtatious and sometimes a little dorky detective is a real ladies man who has no problem hitting on anyone, including his co-workers.


#12 Jennifer Esposito as Det. Jackie Curatola, Blue Bloods

As Danny’s partner, this Brooklyn-native adds a nice flair and some real authenticity to this New York cop show.


#11 Jon Huertas as Det. Javier Esposito, Castle

The cooler dude of the Castle sidekick-duo, Detective Esposito is the homicide division’s resident tough guy. And still he manages to be sweet and cute with friends and formerly-secret-girlfriend Lanie.


#10 Mariska Hargitay as Det. Olivia Benson, Law and Order: SVU

Hargitay’s Olivia Benson has been on the job longer than any other female detective in Law and Order history, and while the character might not get a lot of romance, we’ve seen enough high-powered boyfriends come in and out of her life to know she’s one heck of a woman.

#9 Eddie Cahill as Det. Don Flack, CSI: NY

The sarcastic detective working with the CSI team, Cahill’s Don Flack is a good, simple guy who busts bad guys while looking great in a suit.


#8 Angie Harmon as Det. Jane Rizzoli, Rizzoli and Isles

As a hard-nosed Boston detective, Harmon is the perfect example of a true tomboy who doesn’t quite know how sexy she can be.


#7 Matt Lauria as Det. Caleb Evers, The Chicago Code

Caleb Evers might look like a young, fresh-faced rookie, but beneath his farm boy good looks is te heart and soul of a great detective who helped clean up the mean streets of Chicago.


#6 Maggie Lawson as Det. Juliet O’Hara, Psych

The cutest detective in Santa Barbara pairs looks with intelligence and a no-nonsense attitude. It’s enough to not only solve crimes but also to keep some sanity.


#5 Scott Caan as Det. Danny Williams, Hawaii Five-0

Danny’s not supposed to be the “hot” one on Hawaii Five-0, but he steals our hearts anyway. After all, what’s hotter than an attractive man who wisecracks his way through even the grimmest of crimes?


#4 Jennifer Carpenter as Det. Debra Morgan, Dexter

She’s a terrible judge of men (and not just because she’s never noticed her brother is a serial killer), but Debra Morgan is still hot enough to get lots of them. And, at least to her macho co-workers, Deb’s less-than-feminine mouth just makes her more attractive.


#3 Matt Passmore as Det. Jim Longworth, The Glades

This quick-witted detective moved from Chicago to Florida, and while the city and attitude may be different, his charming city ways and cocky attitude make him devilishly charming no matter where he hunts down bad guys.

#2 Stana Katic as Det. Kate Beckett, Castle

You have to be seriously hot to match Nathan Fillion’s Rick Castle, but Stana Katic does it. Detective Kate Beckett’s hot looks are only emphasized by the fact that she is totally in charge of every man around her.


#1 Desmond Harrington as Det. Joey Quinn, Dexter

This most appropriate of Debra Morgan’s boyfriends (only tried to get Dexter arrested once, not really old, not a serial killer) has managed to up the heat in the Miami Police Department. Sure, he’s kind of unethical, but somehow that only helps.
