Located in the city's downtown district, the Smile Diner's backyard features views of the Vancouver Lookout tower.

Katie's agency is situated in Homer St. The film also shows a few establishing shots of Chicago's skyline.

The Dangerous Lies House
Mr. Wellsley home is located on a corner at 127 Queens Ave and 2nd Street in New Westminster.

This Prairie-style house features a classical column porch with a large external staircase and a beautifully landscaped garden.

The property was also used in the pilot episode of The CW Charmed series.

Nelson’s Folly manor interior rooms
The intriguing mansion has even got a name: the Nelson’s Folly. The gorgeous estate was built in 1913 by Nels Nelson, a wealthy Brewery businessman.

All the interiors were filmed here, showing off a dazzling stained glass ceiling that, to be honest, looks like it has been CGI'd to the scene.

Bank headquarters sequence
The Imperial Bank of Chicago exteriors were shot in the Kuhn LLP offices at 32160 S Fraser Way in Abbotsford.

This is the same town of the Applebarn Pumpkin Farm, where is located the set of the Sabrina series house.

Scenes Vancouver downtown
The attorney's bureau (Jamie Chung as Julia), is the Harbour Convention Centre in the Plaza of Nations, near the BC place stadium.

Detective Chester (Sasha Alexander) meets his colleague Johnson in an alley to check out some... rubbish bins.

The crime scene, showing in the background Vancouver's Holy Rosary Cathedral bell tower, was filmed in the parking lot of the Smile restaurant.
