The Brokenwood Mysteries - Prime Catch Up

There’s something about a murder mystery that is forever compelling. The elements are timeless. The comfortable, somewhat homely location- in our story, a small, vaguely familiar rural town. The hero- a solid, dependable cop with more than a few flaws but a twinkle in his eye - often underestimated by both friends and enemies. The crime. Macabre, inventive and totally mystifying. The suspects. Always a collection of quirky, complex characters. Made with the support of NZ On Air
