Award-winning crime writer Ann Cleeves’ bestselling detective series returns for a third season as DI Jimmy Perez faces a gripping new single mystery. When a young man disappears on the overnight ferry to Shetland, the team embark on a challenging case that leads them from the suspicious close-knit communities of the remote Shetland Islands to Perez’s old stomping grounds in Glasgow. As they start to unpick this increasingly complex conspiracy, Perez is aided by, and becomes romantically involved with, enigmatic police official Asha. But he is unprepared for the ruthlessness of his adversaries, who are willing to take an appalling step to protect their interests: one that will have a devastating effect on them all.
Season Three of “Shetlands” puts the very good first two seasons in the shade. The six episodes of the third season follow a single mystery, a murder that seems to keep growing ever more complicated, despite the best efforts of DI Jimmy Perez and his crew. The disappearance of a young man on the overnight ferry to Shetland quickly turns into a murder investigation, and attacks on a witness and a prime suspect suddenly carry the case into Glasgow’s underworld. DI Perez finds himself back on his old Glasgow beat, up against the odds and against some unexpected enemies who will stop at nothing to win, including hitting back at everyone Perez holds dear…
The cast of Season One and Two return, with Douglas Henshall as Jimmy Perez, Alison O’Donnell as DS “Tosh” McIntosh and Steven Robertson as DS Sandy Wilson. The mystery is a real tangle that may keep even the sharp-eyed viewer guessing to the end. The scenery in the Shetlands and elsewhere in Scotland is of course fantastic, and the urge to binge-watch may be irresistible. Very highly recommended to fans of the series.
Just finished watching Series 1-3 and wow. They are producing series 4 and 5 now. I hope we do get them soon.
Series 3 follows one case set off by one person–and some of this story, I just did not see coming. It is complicated and I am betting there are several characters from series 3 will some how show up again. The scenery of the Shetland Islands is a story all to itself. Beautiful, distant, amazing. There is a bit of comedy–just enough- between “the Father and the Dad” (watch the series to understand that reference). I purchased all of the series and I have re-watched series 1 and 2 again. This series. like Hinterland, are ones to grab a cup of tea, a comfy chair, turn off your cell and just watch.
The scenic islands of Shetland are to die for, such beauty to behold. The accents will make you fall in love with these Scots from the opening scenes. The music is enchanting, a sojourn all by itself. It is a poetic enticing series and then…a body is found. A man trapped alive inside a semi loaded with scrap clothing headed overnight on a boat-ferry for recycling on the mainland. Glasgow becomes a second location for this two sides of the waters murder mystery that becomes so much more. DI Perez (Douglas Henshall) is back with his assistance coming from Wilson (Steven Robertson), and daughter/cop Alison (Alison O’Donnell- yes, she plays a role with her real given name) who also gets caught up in terrible circumstances which becomes yet another mystery plot.
“Best TV Drama” of Scotland in 2016. Henshaw won “Best TV Actor” too.
Created from Ann Cleeves crime novels. It is a captivating nearly 6 hours of crime mystery viewing. You’ll be glad you own the DVD even with no bonus material.
SDH SUBTITLES in English for those needing them for hearing loss and the delightful but hearty accents.
Perez even gets a bit of romance, although yet struggling with his past loss, with cop Asha (Archie Panjabi –‘The Good Wife’). Julie Graham (‘Bletchley Circle’) returns to this series with the role of Rhona Kelly; I love her performance.

In fact, the character of Detective Jimmy Perez is considered by many viewers of this genre to be one of the greatest detectives in the history of crime television. The performance of the lead actor, Douglas Henshall, is absolutely outstanding, as are the performances of the talented members of the supporting cast. “Shetland” is a decidedly intelligent, suspenseful, and gripping murder mystery and drama, which is characterized by superlative writing, brilliant acting, and spectacular North Atlantic scenery, and it definitely merits a five-star rating, along with a very enthusiastic recommendation.
