With Staff Picks, we would like to offer recommendations from our staff to you. These picks will be from a variety of reading, listening or viewing tastes. You might find stuff you've checked out before, or you might be intrigued enough to find a new favorite.

Brokenwood Mysteries [DVD]

Ready for a new Mystery series? Brokenwood is it. It's set in New Zealand and fits the setting well. Very interesting primary characters that fit together like a good gumbo. Just weird enough to mix very well. A lead detective with a history. He doesn't carry a gun 'because I'm not very safe with them'. Excellent young backup detective who doesn't let the old guy get too far down the strange path. Stories that are written for New Zealand and bring out quirks in that culture that many may not be aware of.

We have season 1. Season 2 just came out and they're on schedule for starting season 3 soon. Looks like it's going to be an interesting series so help yourself off to a good start now. See your friendly staff assistant to get this item for you and your family.

If this DVD interests you, feel free to request and check it out. We'll be back next Wednesday with a different Staff Pick.
