Listen for POST and redirect using window.location

I am working on the Salesforce platform using apex and visualforce and I have a scenario where I'm overriding a button that opens a visualforce page which displays a record using the <apex:detail> component. This component does not let me intercept the save event from the controller.

I had firebug open and I can see the POST and the JSON that is returned. I am wondering if there is a way to use JavaScript to listen for the save and after the save completes, redirect the user to another page using window.location = "the page I want to go to". I would much prefer to do this in the controller, but the particular component does not allow me to catch the save event and redirect. So I have to find another crafty way to handle the redirect.

My javascript skills are such that this one is a bit beyond my knowledge. I was hoping a Javascript guru might have a suggestion on how to do this.

Thanks for any help.

Maybe someone with SF experience can chip in - if not then without being able to see the page - difficult to answer
