Shetland DI Jimmy Perez

There are always crime shows on in our house so I was thinking of starting to draw some of the detectives from the telly.  This is the brilliant DI Jimmy Perez played by Douglas Henshall.

What makes Shetland is the combination of the characters and the unique setting.  For some reason it reminds me a bit of Taggart with it's Scottish grit and indeed sometimes they have to leave the island for the big smoke of Glasgow where we can spot local landmarks.  Shetland is an adaption of the Ann Cleeves novels (who also wrote Vera) shown on the BBC but made by ITV studios.

With so many murders every night I'm actually quite dismissive of a lot of generic detective shows (oh he's a maverick is he?) so I'm not sure who I'll tackle now.

In the meantime if you are into crime shows you should give this one a go.
