Four more mysteries based on the books by author Caroline Graham are bound for Blu-ray in August.

In an early announcement to retailers, Acorn Media has revealed 'Midsomer Murders: Set 22' is coming to Blu-ray on August 6.

The cozy villages of Midsomer County reveal their most sinister secrets in these contemporary British television mysteries. Inspired by the novels of Caroline Graham, modern master of the English village mystery, the series stars Neil Dudgeon (Life of Riley) as the capable Detective Chief Inspector John Barnaby, with Jason Hughes (This Life) as his earnest, efficient partner, Detective Sergeant Ben Jones. Guest stars include Warren Clarke, Joanna David, Genevieve O'Reilly, and James Dreyfus.

Mysteries include "The Sleeper Under the Hill", in which Barnaby and Jones investigate a group of Druids in Midsomer Mow; "The Night of the Stag," wherein local bootleggers come under suspicion after the disappearance of a government inspector; "A Sacred Trust," as vandalism and violence send shock waves through Midsomer's cloistered nunnery; and "A Rare Bird," in which the detectives investigate whether competition between ornithology enthusiasts led to murder.

The two-disc set will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 soundtrack, and supplements will include Midsomer Murders in Conversation featurette.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $59.99.
