    I love Justified also so I am obligated to mention that Jere Burns does indeed play Wynn Duffy but the sadistic killer with the icepick is Fletcher Nix played by Desmond Harrington who also plays Debra Morgan’s boyfriend on Dexter. And the crime boss from Detroit is Robert Quarles played by Neal McDonough who was Dumm Dumm Dugan in the Captain America movie.

    “and a sociopath for hire named Wynn Duffy (Jere Burns) who has a sadistic little game that he likes to play with his victims involving an icepick.”
