Question Normal map problem !

So i've made the basic mesh in maya export it to Zbrush -> sculpt then i go to Zmapper ( i layed down the uv's in maya) after i choose Maya_tangent_best_quality the normal map bake perfect. I import the low res mesh exported from Zbrush lvl 1. Then applie the normal map ahd here is the result i don't know why this happening ... ? Is my mesh too low for this type of details ... but i don't think that is the problem.

I add the normal map by choosing -> bump mapping ( @ the material assinged to the model ) then -> Uses as : Tangent Space normals - > bump value - > the texture.psd ...

here is picture workflow i think this may help ....

Any ideas ?
