Summer of new Mystery!s

Masterpiece Mystery! Airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on KLRU. This summer features new episodes from favorite detectives as well as a new detective series.

Miss Marple
With a gentle smile and a probing mind, Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple often finds herself at the center of trouble — a witness to betrayals, poisonings and all manner of mayhem. Knitting needles in hand and a cup of tea always at the ready, Marple quietly earns confidence while uncovering secrets and exposing killers. In The Pale Horse airing July 10 at 8 p.m., Miss Marple seeks justice, armed with little more than a mysterious list of names sent by an old friend only moments before he was murdered.

Zen
What does an honest cop do when corruption rules on both sides of the law? Detective Aurelio Zen works to bring justice to modern-day Italy, whether the authorities want it or not. Rufus Sewell (Middlemarch) stars as Zen, a Roman police detective hailing from Venice, where “Zen” is a local shortening of the name Zeno. Separated from his wife and living with his mother, he is too frazzled by his job to think about romance. That is, until he meets Tania Moretti (Caterina Murino), his chief’s new secretary. Zen features a trio of spellbinding cases based on the bestselling novels by British crime writer Michael Dibdin. Zen airs July 17, 24 and 31 at 8 p.m.
