    seems like cardboard cut-outs

    "Marc Piron seemed more straightforward. Comes to Australia, sees business opportunity, meets Fiona, falls for her and decides to stay...But Still these two seemed like cardboard cut-outs to the investigator.

    (Someone gathers facts about Marc and Fiona to the investigator. But the investigator "still didn't have a picture of the people in his head." )
    So, what does that mean by saying people are like cardboard cut-outs in the context?

    Thanks a lot.

    It means that they seem one-dimensional, he has a vague idea of who they are, but no depth of knowledge about them.
