Brokenwood: Population 5000 and declining- slowly- one by one, or two by two depending on the murder rate that week. All-in-all, Brokenwood is a pretty nice place to live- if you watch your back and sleep with one eye open.
Detective Senior Sergeant Mike Shepherd and Detective Kristin Sims return for a brand new season of the award-winning local drama series, The Brokenwood Mysteries. Joined by Detective Constable Sam Breen and the rather quirky Dr Gina Kadinsky, they’re ready to solve the murders that plague this small, bucolic New Zealand town.
