TOP 500 REVIEWERon 31 May 2015
A well-written and well-acted series featuring four complete stories based on Ann Cleeves' novels. Douglas Henshall is excellent as detective Jimmy Perez, and the supporting cast is strong. Each story is well-paced and takes enough time to build characters and atmosphere.

Filmed on location in the Shetland Isles, this series captures the beauty of the islands without resorting to tweeness, focusing instead on the bleak, uncompromising wildness of the landscape and the weather. Perhaps unsurprisingly, given that Shetland is closer to Norway than mainland Scotland, this series has something of the thoughtful, slightly angsty feel of a Scandinavian detective series.

I avoided the first series, not fancying it at all when it was first shown. How wrong I was. A good cast, good plot lines, lovely countryside - what more can you want? A tiny caveat, having watched the latest series as it was broadcast, the accents seem to be more Anglicised now, the odd word escaped me in the early episodes.

All the books and dvds about Shetland, and this DVD is one of the best, are worth spending money on. Great DVD and it was great to watch.

A solid transfer of an enjoyable series. Scripts and performances are all of a high quality and even if the episodes are rather long - and feel a little padded - at just under two hours each I recommend this box set for fans of Celtic Noir!
