The Mallorca Files Season 2 is being screened on BBC1, after a successful debut season in 2019. 

It's a must-watch for Death in Paradise fans too, as this series is also set on a sunny island and follows a British detective. It's an easy watch, as each episode follows a different case so the loose ends are tied up before the credits roll. So there's plenty of crime to sink your teeth into. 

The series follows a British police officer named Miranda Blake and a German detective named Max Winter. The two are very different, as Miranda is a workaholic and introverted, while Max is a lot more laid-back and follows gut instinct.

What is The Mallorca Files about? 

In The Mallorca Files, Miranda Blake and Max Winter are teamed up by Inés Villegas, the Chief of Palma Police in Mallorca, to solve mysteries. They tend to solve crimes committed against the international community on the island. 

There's some humour mixed in with serious moments, and the creators have revealed they wanted to create something "feel good" that would work in the broadcaster's afternoon slot.

Cosmopolitan Pictures founder Ben Donald told TBI that the series came out of  "a desire to create a feel-good action-driven cop show like the ones I grew up with and, secondly, a desire to rebrand and refresh the Anglo-German relationship on television.”

And season two sees Miranda and Max tackle more crimes on the idyllic island.
