A bit chatty - but consistently intriguing NZ whodunits!
30 January 2017 | by canuckteachSee all my reviews

WE subscribe to Acorn.TV (heartily recommended) -- so we get to stream all these great (mostly Brit or part of the emmpahr {empire}) episodes or mini-series. Neill Rea is 'Mike', a chubby new chief detective in this quaint area of NZ. He is ably-assisted by 'Kristin', played by a very pretty Fern Sutherland, who seems strictly business, but may, one day, have designs on Mike, who, like Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic Park, is always on the lookout for a future Mrs. Ex. Meantime, Mike is strictly business also, diligently hunting through clues to find the perpetrator of a fresh murder each week.

Another quirky character is the grim Russian Medical Examiner, Gina, played with reserve by Cristina Serban Ionda, who apparently, is American, but sounds like a sardonic medical official from somewhere in the Russian steppes. Whatever Mike was thinking happened to the victim never did, according to her. She might have romantic designs on Mike one day, too, if she ever warms up to the average water temperature in Wisconsin in December.

Always mysterious, always entertaining, always keeping you guessing. A fine series, with quality episodes each season. No nudity or cursing.
