The Brokenwood Mysteries S8
In bucolic Brokenwood, New Zealand, the residents live a seemingly quiet existence and appear, at first glance, to be harmless. But beneath the town’s peaceful veneer, killers, blackmailers and trouble-makers lurk in even the most picturesque of corners. To quell the town’s alarming murder rate, DSS Mike Shepherd (Neill Rea) and DC Kristin Simms (Fern Sutherland), and recent addition, DC Daniel Chalmers (Jarod Rawiri) must use all manner of unconventional methods to investigate the dangerous rivalries and lethal grudges that erupt into a succession of macabre and unusual crimes.
With six feature-length, standalone mysteries, season 8 will see a murder at a music festival where the victim was seemingly literally killed by sound, the violent death of a cowgirl possibly motivated by a 160-year-old family feud, and a Egyptian mummy that appears to return to life.
