What’s it about
“The bucolic town of Brokenwood is picturesque on the surface, but its idyllic fa?ade harbors simmering passions that often erupt into grisly crimes. A transplant from the big city, Detective Senior Sergeant Mike Shepherd (Neill Rea) employs unconventional methods to solve the small town¡¯s most gruesome murders with his partner, Detective Kristin Sims (Fern Sutherland), and eager young DC Sam Breen (Nic Sampson). In these four feature-length mysteries, Shepherd and his team contend with the death of a skydiver whose parachute was tampered with, the killing of the eccentric owner of a Victorian reenactment village, farmers feuding over the rights to honey bees, and a nursing home full of suspects with dementia. Set against the gorgeous backdrop of the New Zealand countryside, The Brokenwood Mysteries has been hailed as ¡°a droll New Zealand crime show with¡a perfect pairing¡± of lead detectives.
