Shetland is so far north, there are nights where it is never completely dark. On one such endless day, a teenage girl is murdered and it is up to DI Jimmy Perez to shed light on the killing. Only recently returned to his native island, Perez finds it hard to break through the suspicion and fear of a community not used to locking its doors but who are now facing the reality of a killer in their midst. This is the first in a series of crimes Jimmy is committed to solving. 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.

The new season of "Shetland" will premiere with six new 60-minute episodes on Monday, July 9 at 9:00 p.m.

Blue Lightning Part 1 of 2

After visiting scientist Anna Blake is found murdered in her lab, Perez is compelled to return to his childhood home of Fair Isle. The only suspects appear to be Anna's immediate family and Anna's fellow scientists. Perez and Tosh arrive just before the flights to and from Fair Isle are grounded, due to storms over Shetland. They will have to work in isolation, without access to a forensic team. Perez works quickly, ensuring the crime scene is sealed off. He sends photos of Anna's body to Sandy, who sends them on to forensics in Scotland in order to find a probable cause of death.
