Veteran police detective Mike Shepherd (Neill Rea) finds it hard to adjust himself to the quiet New Zealand town of Brokenwood-but the real challenge may come in working successfully with new partner Detective Kristin Sims (Fern Sutherland). The many-times-divorced Shepherd's maverick ways run counter to Sims' by-the-book style, with each puzzling criminal case a new test of their smarts and partnership.
