Brokenwood: Population 5000 and declining – slowly - one by one or, two by two depending on the murder rate that week.
In Brokenwood, an early morning mist will often give way to a glorious day. As far as towns go it’s bucolic, pastoral yet curious. All-in-all, Brokenwood is a pretty nice place to live – if you watch your back and sleep with one eye open.
Yes – murders do happen here. They’re strange, disturbing and always baffling. They come when you least expect them. They happen to people you care about. They’re perpetrated by those you’d never suspect.
They’ll keep you guessing whodunit to the very end and the only person who might be able to solve them is Brokenwood’s newest resident – Senior Sergeant Mike Shepherd (Neill Rea) and his smart, sassy side-kick, Detective Kristin Sims (Fern Sutherland).
