Character Bio

Detective Kristin Sim photo
Kristin is young, determined - and the kind of cop that really gets under Mike’s skin. She is the type who writes up every suspect, every relevant fact and scrap of evidence meticulously on a whiteboard. Initially, she comes across as a little too driven and ambitious for his liking. Kristin believes she’s destined for bigger things and is intent on making her posting in Brokenwood CIB a winner in every respect. She’s out to impress with her dedication to the task at hand. She’s very much a ‘by the book’ cop - techno savvy and fighting a losing battle to get Mike interested in that side of the process.She’s been in Brokenwood for a couple of years - which is longer than Mike - but she has much less affinity with the town. She’s too distant - too formal - too efficient. She’s a little too much ‘theory’ and not enough heart. So she is often aghast at Mike’s lack of professional thoroughness. She’s disparaging about his seeming inability to follow correct, time-honored procedures.

But she’s smart, sassy and more than a match for him intellectually. She’s aware that sometimes Mike takes the piss out of her by getting her to wade through mounds of paperwork so that he can go out and do some ‘real’ detective work. Sometimes she thinks Mike’s trying to keep her away from the real work. But Kristin is sharp and physically fit - which is more than can be said for Mike. If there’s action involved, it’s more likely that Kristin will by the one involved and not the one gasping for breath during a foot-chase.

But for all her complaints about Mike, Kristin has to admit he’s very good at his job - even if she’s got no idea how he actually does it. It’s that intrigue - that feeling that there’s something she’s not quite getting - that makes Kristin’s and Mike’s relationship so interesting.
