Then, as the plot unravelled, he found himself having to ask her why there was a dodgy company registered in her name, and if she’d had any idea that her husband just happened to be at the centre of the people trafficking operation that has been the subject of this series. She wasn’t best pleased, impaled on the double prongs of Jimmy’s accusations and being played for a mug by her husband.

Based on a series of novels by Ann Cleeves, the series follows DI Jimmy Perez, a straightforward detective inspector who lives in Shetland and shares his stepdaughter Cassie's upbringing with her real father. Speaking about his role to BBC, Douglas explained: "In terms of his character, he's not one of those haunted types with lots of problems, he's actually a straightforward man who would just like a quiet life. Perez is a slightly idealistic guy who thinks Shetland is a safe haven - a nice, safe place to raise his daughter." Each series follows a particularly grisly murder investigation led by Jimmy.
Previously on Shetland: Troubled by historical DNA evidence results, Jimmy has to face the fact that Duncan may have been involved in Lizzie Kilmuir's murder, and potentially Sally McColl's as well. A shocked Duncan is brought to the station for questioning, hurt that Perez would even think him capable of murder. However, the detective knows Duncan's lying - perhaps not about the murder, but about something else significant. So when Duncan finally admits he had an affair with Donna, it's not long before a bombshell is dropped.
