One of my favorite TV series at the moment is Death in Paradise. I've got all three seasons available in the US and I'm just waiting for Season Four to become available.
If you haven't seen this show its about a British Police Officer sent to a small island in the Caribbean to solve a murder. The only thing is, he doesn't quite appreciate his tropical surroundings. The characters are great and so is the scenery. I've also just noticed that the creator and writer of the series Robert Thorogood has come out with a novel based on the characters in the show called A Meditation on Murder. When I get around to reading it I'll come back and post a review.
