Shetland is so far north in Scotland, there are nights where it is never completely dark. Only recently returned to his native island, DI Jimmy Perez finds it hard to break through the suspicion and fear of a community not used to locking its doors. Helping Jimmy is DS McIntosh, an outsider from Glasgow, and TDC Wilson, a life-long Shetlander. Lacking the resources of a mainland police force, Jimmy and his team must navigate the traditions and unspoken rules of the close knit community. In the series opener, an elderly woman is shot and killed in the grounds of her cottage ultimately revealing shocking family secrets from the past. For more information visit KCET.org/Shetland.
