This list is frequently updated whenever we have time or watch new shows. If you have any recommendations (from any country) please share in the comments! We try to limit it to shows where solving a mystery (or the eventual revelation of a mystery) is the main focus of the film. This includes solving crimes, finding hidden items, discovering hidden locations, etc.
