A farmer is found murdered just before the spring equinox. A government inspector is missing. There is vandalism and violence at a cloistered nunnery. There is a murder among ornithologists.
This is the first DVD of this series that I’ve seen. Each episode takes place in different villages of the fictional country of Midsomer. There is a LOT of good British mystery and detective work. Some changes to the cast have been made over the years. 3 ½* (I liked this season)
