Scotland Yard Detective Inspector Richard Poole is sent to the Caribbean island of Sainte Marie to solve a fellow policeman's murder. Having done so, he finds himself seconded to the local police force as the dead man's replacement.
Faced with puzzling murders and a local team with unorthodox approaches, Poole is joined again by the feisty Camille Bordey. Together they face a pirate curse, murdered nuns and a case that must be solved while a hurricane bears down on the island.
Season three opens with the shocking murder of DI Richard Poole, an event which heralds the arrival of new detective DI Humphrey Goodman, who is quite unlike his predecessor. Disorganised and gawky, Humphrey's rather bumbling and accident-prone ways means he doesn't make the greatest first impression on Camille, Fidel and Dwayne.
Now settled on the sun-baked island of Saint Marie, Detective Inspector Humphrey Goodman has come to terms with his painful split from his wife and finally resolved to confess his feelings for his beautiful Detective Sergeant, Camille Bordey. This series sees Humphrey joined by Commissioner Selwyn Patterson's two newest recruits. Florence Cassell is a tenacious, thorough detective - the perfect foil to Humphrey's shambolic eccentricity. And with the hard-working Fidel Best now departed, eager young rookie J P Hooper is desperate to make his mark and, perhaps more worryingly, totally in awe of the ever-mischievous Dwayne. It's a talented team, but they'll need to gel quickly: these testing murder cases are more mystifying than anything seen on Saint Marie before.
With a new team firmly in place, DI Humphrey Goodman is finally settled on the beautiful island of Saint Marie. Feeling as though something is still missing from his life, Goodman enlists DS Florence Cassell to help him crack the complexities of the dating world. Humphrey's deductive powers may not be of much use in the world of romance, but back on the job his considerable intellect will be key in solving some of the most perplexing murder cases Saint Marie has yet experienced.
