Shetland Island Mysteries

Ann Cleeves' Shetland series is set in the most northerly community in the UK.  The islands are closer to Norway than to Edinburgh and in their bleak beauty they have much in common with Scandinavia.  Her books feature Detective Inspector Jimmy Perez, who grew up in remote Fair Isle, and the mysteries are quiet, intense and give an insight into the domestic and working lives of Shetland Islanders.  RAVEN BLACK, the first of the series, won the CWA Gold Dagger, and was adapted as a radio show in both the UK and Germany.  RED BONES was made into a popular TV drama and six more episodes will be broadcast this year by the BBC under the series title SHETLAND.  The books have been translated into more than 25 languages.
