My Thoughts 

The Brokenwood Mysteries is a fast-paced series set in New Zealand. It revolves around Mike Shepard, a homicide detective. He sets out to solve some grisly murders along with his partner Kriston Sims. This special holiday edition includes an episode called A Merry Bloody Christmas.  Even on Christmas trouble is brewing when the mayor is murdered after the annual holiday parade. At first they think it might be a rival, but as more people turn up dead, it becomes clear there are darker motives.

In addition to the DVD, the set also includes a collectible card featuring some of your favorite characters. You can find this fun holiday collectible online at Amazon or on Acorn Media. It's a fun stocking stuffer for fans of the show and gives you an entertaining holiday show you can turn into an annual tradition.
