What is Ihaka: Blunt Instrument about?

Temuera Morrison plays Detective Sergeant Ihaka, a no-nonsense cop in the Auckland PD. After a very public incident involving a mugger, a wounded cop and a baseball bat, Ihaka is shipped off to Sydney, Australia for a couple of weeks. He is sent to Sydney to attend an international symposium on policing techniques and finds himself partnered with Kirsty Finn, a by-the-book, "desk jockey" detective with the Australian Federal Police. One of the exercises of the symposium is to review procedures used in a past case, then report on their findings. Ihaka and Finn are given the unsolved case of the rape/murder of an up-and-coming model, from 3 years earlier. Supposedly the killer is a psycho and this was just a "thrill kill". However, during the course of their review they find evidence that was previously ignored and suddenly they aren't just reviewing the case, they are hot on the heels of the killer and up to their necks in blackmail, deceit and the upper echelon of society.

Microsoft Store

Microsoft Store gets a makeover this year just in time for the release of Windows 11. The new store is already looking promising with reputable partners on board, including Adobe, Zoom, and Disney Plus. A partnership with Amazon also means access to Android apps that can run on your Windows 11 computer.

Got a question about Microsoft Store?

All kinds of apps are on Microsoft Store, plus a large collection of movies available for rent and purchase. There’s also plenty of popular shows you can buy with complete seasons of The Walking Dead and its spin-off Fear the Walking Dead, Shameless, and Better Call Saul just to name a few. Even the complete seasons of South Park are on here, as well as new episodes of Rick and Morty.
Buying movies on Microsoft Store can go as low as $4.99 during weekly specials, while rental flash sale can get you to rent movies for as low as $0.99. Some blockbuster movies are also offered with up to 45% off.
As part of its Windows 11 announcement, Microsoft makes a new policy change that will allow developers to keep every penny their Windows app makes. While the 100% revshare option doesn’t apply to games, it’s still something that Apple and Google don’t have right now.


  • Supports more desktop applications
  • Android apps now available
  • Additions of Teams, Office, Edge, and Visual Studio
  • Rent movies or purchase TV shows and films on Xbox, Windows, and via Microsoft.com
