Telemystery, the most complete selection of detective, amateur sleuth, private investigator, and suspense television mystery series now available or coming soon to DVD

Telemystery is your source for one of the most comprehensive listings of crime drama, amateur sleuth, private investigator, mystery and suspense television series, mini-series and made-for-television movies, now available on or coming soon to DVD or Blu-ray disc.

Earlier today we profiled two US television series being released this week. In this post, we're taking a look at two European series also coming out on DVD this week.

The Commissario Guido Brunetti Mysteries: Episodes 9 and 10, a Telemystery Crime Series

Uwe Kockisch stars as Venetian police detective Guido Brunetti in The Commissario Guido Brunetti Mysteries, adapted from the crime novels by Donna Leon.

Two DVD sets are being released this week.

The Commissario Guido Brunetti Mysteries: Episodes 9 and 10 (available on DVD) includes "Doctored Evidence" and "Uniform Justice". We haven't seen these episodes, but have read the 2004 book Doctored Evidence, one of the superb entries in this long running mystery series.

The Commissario Guido Brunetti Mysteries: Episodes 11 and 12 (available on DVD) includes "Death in a Strange Country" and "A Sea of Troubles".

The episodes on these DVDs are in German with English subtitles.

Maria Wern: Episodes 1-3, a Telemystery Crime Series

Eva Röse stars as Detective Inspector Maria Wern in Maria Wern, a series of Swedish-language adaptations of the series crime novels by Anna Jansson. (To our knowledge, none of this author's books have been translated into English.)

Two DVD sets are being released this week.

Maria Wern: Episodes 1-3 (available on DVD) includes "The Speechless God", "All the Tranquil Dead", and "Dreams from Snow", which we believe actually aired as the second season of the series in Sweden in 2010. (The first season was a 4-part adaptation of Främmande fågel, "Strange Bird".)

Maria Wern: Episodes 4-7 (available on DVD) includes "May Death Sleep", "Black Butterfly", "Boy Missing", and "Not Even the Past", which we believe were released as theatrical films in 2011.

The episodes on these DVDs are in Swedish with English subtitles.
