Storyline

Scotland Yard DI Richard Poole is sent to the Caribbean island of Sainte Marie to solve a fellow policeman's murder. Having done so, he finds himself seconded to the local police force as the dead man's replacement. Poole proves to be a brilliant detective, solving several complex murders. He's not quite suited to either the pace of life on the island or the heat and sand, neither of which he likes very much. He also doesn't like seafood. That aside, the place is just great.

Simple Murder Mystery Pleasure
1 December 2011 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

So many TV shows try to make "guessing" the murderer nearly impossible. They add irrelevant sub-plots, secrets that are only revealed at the end and over complicated characters that cause confusion. I've just watched episode 6 and I guessed the murderer straight away. But do you think this took away any of the enjoyment of this excellent murder mystery? not in the slightest. The characters are witty & charming and every episode draws one closer to each off the personalities. I eagerly await every new episode. I'm a Brit living in Cape Town, which I consider to be paradise, but one can't help but fall in love with this quirky little Caribbean island.
