It was a big twist at the end of BBC One’s Shetland on Wednesday night, when two major characters were arrested on suspicion of murdering each other. A detective inspector named Jimmy Perez and Duncan Hunter were both framed for the murder of season four villain Donna Killick (Fiona Bell), whose last act before killing herself was to blame both men for her death.
Over the season, Duncan had become friends with Jimmy, the stepfather of Jimmy’s daughter Cassie. The two men had an unlikely friendship, but it worked out well for them both. Duncan confessed that he helped Donna kill herself at her request, but she had already written a letter to her lawyer before she died, implying that the two men were trying to kill her. This is because of their friendship.
After Duncan went to the police to try to protect Jimmy, the police also arrested Jimmy. There’s still one big question left: will Shetland come back for a seventh season? You can find out everything you need to know about the seventh season of Shetland here.
