Summary

"Shetland" is a murder-mystery starring Douglas Henshall as native Shetlander detective Jimmy Perez who has returned home with stepdaughter Cassie after a long spell away. It isn't long before Jimmy is thrust into the thick of things when croft owner Mima Wilson is shot dead. To add to the urgency of the situation, he is under pressure to catch the killer before tourists arrive for the fire festival Up Helly Aa. After uncovering envy, greed and bitterness between two feuding families, he is keen to question Hattie James, an archaeologist who has suddenly gone missing since the shooting. The supporting cast includes Erin Armstrong, Gemma Chan, Sandra Voe and Alison O'Donnell. Adapted from the book Red Bones by crime writer Ann Cleeves, it was shown in two parts on BBC One in March 2013.
