What To Watch On Amazon Prime If You Love Whodunnits

Never has the whodunnit been as alluring in the last decade or so, to my recollection, as after Knives Out. In fact, few mystery movies of its kind are as rewatchable as Rian Johnson’s subversive crowdpleaser, but, unfortunately, it's not available on Amazon Prime. On the bright side, subscribers can treat themselves to more than enough suspenseful films and mystery TV shows alike included on the streaming service.

From Agatha Christie classics to modern-day sitcoms with a noirish edge, stories that require audience participation in piecing together the how, what, and why of a crime are all over Amazon Prime’s extensive library, allowing viewers to treat themselves to hours of puzzling content. Of course, with a selection as large as this, one is bound to run into a few stories that may feel a little too familiar to each other which, if intentional, can be fun, but also a bit more exhausting than truly thrilling as one would hope.

With that in mind, the biggest mystery on whodunnit fans’ minds is what movies and series from Amazon Prime are the best to choose from. Consider that case closed with these 12 great brainteasers of film and television.

Murder On The Orient Express (1974)

In 1935, renowned Belgian detective Hercule Poirot (Albert Finney) hitches an impromptu trip to London on a luxurious commercial train, only for it to become the site of his latest investigation when a passenger meets a grisly end.

Why It's A Good Option If You Love A Good Whodunnit: Agatha Christie’s novel is one of the most celebrated whodunnits of all time, if its multiple screen adaptations as recent as 2017 are any indication, but this Sidney Lumet directed Oscar-winner, featuring an all-star supporting cast including Lauren Bacall and Sean Connery, is arguably the most essential.

Fortitude (2015-2018)

An idyllic community located in the Arctic with a squeaky clean criminal record is suddenly upended by the discovery of a brutal murder, but what begins as an episodic crime thriller evolves into something far more sinister and much stranger soon enough.

Why It's A Good Option If You Love A Good Whodunnit: By the second season of this three-season series, Dennis Quaid led the cast of this British import, picked up by Amazon Prime in 2016, which its ceaselessly foreboding atmosphere and dubious ensemble of unforgettable characters will keep you frozen in an obsessive binging addiction.

Clue (1985)

When suspicious socialite Mr. Boddy (Lee Ving) is killed under unusual circumstances at his own dinner party, his six colorful guests, his shady maid, and his astute butler (the always irresistibly charming Tim Curry) must take it upon their bumbling selves to figure out who among them is the culprit.

Why It's A Good Option If You Love A Good Whodunnit: The makers of this hilarious send-up of mystery classics wanted to honor the concept of how the board game that inspired it ends with a conviction every time you would play it, which is why the conclusion of the film would vary by where your theater was located during its initial 1985 run. Fortunately, you can see all three endings by streaming it from home.

Luther (2010-2019)

DCI John Luther is one of London’s most brilliant criminal investigators, if not for his questionable methods and antagonistic personality, which prove to be a recurring roadblock in, not only his work but also, his everyday life.

Why It's A Good Option If You Love A Good Whodunnit:Idris Elba won multiple awards for playing the self-destructive central character of this British crime series, which ended officially in 2019, that proves any mystery, no matter how complex, is only as interesting as the complexity of its detective.

A Simple Favor (2018)

Stephanie (Anna Kendrick), an average single mother and parenting vlogger, takes a little vacation from her comfort zone to investigate the sudden disappearance of abrasive socialite Emily Nelson (Blake Lively), learning more about her new “friend” than she would have expected in the process.

Why It's A Good Option If You Love A Good Whodunnit: Paul Feig, director of Bridesmaids, the all-female Ghostbusters reboot, and Last Christmas, takes a much-welcome stroll outside his comfort zone as well with this fun, stylish, and sexy adaptation of Darcey Bell’s novel that, while it is plenty funny, its dark nature is not to be underestimated either.

Stream it on Amazon Primehere

Psych (2006-2014)

The slacker son of a retired cop (James Roday) convinces the Santa Barbara Police Department that his photographic memory is actually ESP and ropes his lifelong best friend Burton “Gus” Guster (Dulé Hill) into solving crimes with him through their own private investigative business, while continuing posing as a medium.

Why It's A Good Option If You Love A Good Whodunnit: This long-running, cleverly titled dramedy from USA is not without its intriguing mysteries, but what most effectively keeps viewers in suspense is the question of how long its crime chasing duo can maintain their clairvoyant façade.

Stream it on Amazon Primehere

Deep Red (1975)

Speaking of clairvoyance, after a mindreader falls prey to the killer whose thoughts she heard at a jazz pianist’s concert, said musician teams up with a reporter to investigate the crime, only to be mysteriously outsmarted by the culprit every step of the way in this Italian thriller.

Why It's A Good Option If You Love A Good Whodunnit: All you really need to know about this shockingly macabre, yet visually stunning, mystery is the name of its director: giallo pioneer Dario Argento, whom horror fans should also know from his kaleidoscopic 1977 supernatural classicSuspiria.

Stream it on Amazon Primehere

Murder Rooms: Mysteries Of The Real Sherlock Holmes (2000-2001)

Medical student Arthur Conan Doyle (Charles Edwards) observes unconventional methods and impeccable knack for observation of his teacher and mentor Dr. Joseph Bell (Ian Richardson) as he accompanies him on a collection of cases in London.

Why It's A Good Option If You Love A Good Whodunnit: Any fan of a mystery is sure to have read their fair share of Sherlock Holmes stories (or seen any adaptations), so why not change it up with this five-episode dramatization of the real-life detective who inspired the long enduring character?

Stream it on Amazon Primehere

The Lady Vanishes (1979)

A young heiress (Cybill Shepherd) and a photographer (Elliot Gould) search for an elderly woman (Angela Lansbury) who has gone inexplicably missing on a train traveling through World War II-era Germany, despite no other passengers claiming to have seen her on board.

Why It's A Good Option If You Love A Good Whodunnit: This is yet another essential adaptation of a celebrated suspense novel set on a train and featuring top-notch cast, especially Lansbury, who would eventually make a living out of solving mysteries on the popular series Murder, She Wrote.

Stream it on Amazon Primehere

House (2004-2012)

Arrogant medical diagnostics specialist Gregory House (two-time Golden Globe-winner Hugh Laurie) is relentless in identifying the rare afflictions of his patients, without letting his rocky (to put it lightly) relationship with his team of doctors and his addiction to pain pills get in the way.

Why It's A Good Option If You Love A Good Whodunnit: As I said before, the stories of Sherlock Holmes are old news for mystery fans, so why not try this iconic, long-running medical drama heavily inspired by the brilliant, yet troubled, investigator instead?

Stream it on Amazon Primehere

Ordeal By Innocence (2018)

During Christmas in 1954, young Jack Argyll (Anthony Boyle) tries to prove his innocence when his adoptive mother, philanthropic heiress Rachel (Anna Chancellor), is found murdered at her English estate.

Why It's A Good Option If You Love A Good Whodunnit: This twisted family drama from the puzzling mind of Agatha Christie, and starring an amazing cast featuring Bill Nighy, is broken up into three chilling chapters of this Amazon Prime exclusive miniseries.

Stream it on Amazon Primehere

Friday The 13th (1980)

A group of fresh counselors setting up for a new season at the recently re-opened Camp Crystal Lake find their luck has run out when, one by one, they meet a grisly fate at the hands of an unseen assailant.

Why It's A Good Option If You Love A Good Whodunnit: While this iconic slasher series would eventually come to be defined by watching the hockey-masked immortal Jason Voorhees slash morally questionable youths, I would recommend virgins of the franchise to at least check out the film that started it all, in which the killer remains a mystery until its astonishing conclusion.

Stream it on Amazon Primehere

The Best Mystery Shows on Amazon Prime

W

Who doesn’t love to kick back and relax to the soothing sounds of murder, mayhem, and the tortured suspense of an edge-of-your-seat mystery? Given the popularity of police procedural dramas and true-crime docuseries, the answer is: no one. Everyone loves a good mystery TV series nowadays, and you'll find quite a lot of them on Amazon Prime, in addition to its many other outstanding movies and TV shows. When you feel like watching a murder or crime-solving show, here are the most addicting options to start with on Amazon right now.

Absentia (2017–2020)

This Amazon original takes a chilling missing-person narrative and turns it into a heart-pumping thriller. Stana Katic stars as FBI agent Emily Byrne, who went missing and was declared dead for six years… except she's not. She's alive! And there are so many questions when she returns! An eerie mystery unfolds when the heroine at the center of it all struggles to recall what happened to her, but is determined to face her traumatic past and hunt down her abductor.

Agatha Christie’s The ABC Murders (2018)

Adapted from the classic Agatha Christie crime novel, this '30s-era mystery series stars John Malkovich as Hercule Poirot, a detective taunted by someone with the initials "A.B.C.," who sends him letters threatening to commit murder. Once murders start to plague London, the retired investigator feels compelled to jump into the investigation and piece together clues the killer leaves behind. It's a cannon mystery story, and Malkovich brings an interesting dynamism to the role to make for an eerie period piece.  
Watch it now on Amazon

Alias (2001–2006)

J. J. Abrams' Alias was the perfect action series for the new millennium, and is just as riveting of an espionage drama now as it was then. Fronted by the magnetic performance of Jennifer Garner (and her many, trendy wigs) as regular-college-student-turned-double-agent Sydney Bristow, it's your classic globe-trotting, fancy-gadget-using spy series as Bristow works for the CIA and tries to take down the dangerous, international agency SD-6 from the inside out. It's not just the kind of show that's just there to wow you with Garner's stunts and explosive fight sequences, though—it's the kind of thriller that puts you through the ringer emotionally, too, and gives far more depth to its female action heroine than typical genre star. It's time to quit your Bond movie marathons—it's really all about Bristow.
Watch it now on Amazon

Bones (2005–2017)

The forensic analysis of decaying corpses and shattered skeletons does not scream "comfort television," but for 12 seasons, Bones, the Fox procedural about the clinical team-up of FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) to forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan (Emily Deschanel), supplied people with the warm embrace of a by-the-books thriller series like NCIS and CSI, but with AP credit. Bones is firmly in network primetime's mystery-of-the-week genre, but creator Hart Hanson never missed an opportunity in its run to up the show's gag-worthy game, and stars Deschanel and Boreanaz brought the biology and the chemistry. While Brennan and Booth's romance feels predestined from minute one, the "will they/won't they" is as real and detailed as any of the gruesome investigations.
Watch it now on Amazon

Thrillist TV

Bosch (2014–2021)

The first season of this Amazon-produced procedural series finds Harry Bosch (Titus Welliver) under legal fire for shooting a suspect two years earlier—hotter (and more relevant) water than his TV detective predecessors. His investigations of a sadistic serial killer become an escape for the tortured officer (he's also a veteran of Afghanistan, and the son of a murdered sex worker), and as the series progresses, a healing process. Bosch eventually trims down to a grizzly neo-noir, a Miami Vice for the True Detective fan, which should be celebrated as peak airport-novel TV. It's similarly sharp and reliable, delivering complicated mysteries drawn straight from the pages of Bosch creator Michael Connelly's many, many best-sellers.
Watch it now on Amazon

Carnival Row (2019– )

You gotta hand it to Carnival Row: It sure is a show about an alternate urban fantasy universe where the world of humans and the world of the fairies are constantly at war with each other, starring Cara Delevingne as a winged fey named "Vignette Stonemoss" and Orlando Bloom as human detective "Rycroft Philostrate," caught in a love/hate relationship in London's seediest back alley, stalked by a magical Jack the Ripper. All things considered, the series certainly mostly invests in its elaborate production design and world building, but at the center of this alternative Victorian world is a crazed hunt for a serial killer—so, basically, it's the perfect mystery for fantasy fans. If you let it, Carnival Row definitely has the power to cast a spell on you. 
Watch it now on Amazon

Counterpart (2017–2019)

What's better than one J.K. Simmons? Two J.K. Simmons. (Plus scene-stealer Harry Lloyd.) This inventive sci-fi spy series from writer Justin Marks (The Jungle Book) focuses on a career UN paper-pusher (Simmons) who gets swept up in interdimensional intrigue when his "counterpart" from a parallel universe (also Simmons) jumps through a portal and disrupts diplomacy between the two worlds. It gets mind-bendier from there.
Watch it now on Amazon

Detective Anna (2016–2017)

Nothing says "mystery" quite like a TV show that combines the main character’s discovery that she can communicate with the dead with the ability to solve cold case investigations. In this one-season Russian series set at the end of the 19th century, 19-year-old Anna uses her newfound supernatural powers—coming in the form of dreams and visions—to help close criminal investigations that have kept local police guessing.
Watch it now on Amazon

Dexter (2006–2013)

Everyone's favorite moral serial killer was a ratings and critical success for Showtime during its eight-season run. Today, the show about a blood-spatter analyst by day, psychopath who channels his urges into justice by night reads a bit like a cultural relic from a recent past in which American audiences seemed to lap up antihero-centric stories about characters descending further into amorality (Breaking Bad, Weeds, The Sopranos, etc). Still, there's enough mystery, murder, and excitement to keep you hooked and bingeing. At least for the first few seasons, it's bloody addicting.
Watch it now on Amazon

The Expanse (2015– )

On the surface, SyFy's The Expanse has an un-mystery-like hook: It's Battlestar Galactica meets Game of Thrones. The ambitious series combines the tense, close-quarters naval space opera of the former with the sprawling, based-on-a-book-series storytelling approach of the latter. Easy enough. But then you see Thomas Jane, playing a weary detective who won't quit, wearing a fedora over a stringy Macklemore haircut and you realize this is actually an intergalactic neo-noir. Think Raymond Chandler with a pinch of Isaac Asimov. The special effects will draw you in, but the gumshoe-with-anti-gravity-boots narrative keeps you coming back for more. 
Watch it now on Amazon

The Fall (2013–2016)

Instead of adhering to typical procedural MO's of searching for answers in the wake of a mystery, The Fall is more of a disturbing game of cat and mouse as opposed to a whodunit. In fact, you're introduced to serial killer Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan), who's been brutally attacking Belfast women, in the first episode, and the series follows his actions just as closely as it does the hunt to catch him. On the opposite side of the story is the superb Gillian Anderson as Stella Gibson, an officer called upon by Northern Ireland to assist in the investigation after the case has been open for nearly a month. It's a thriller in every sense of the word.
Watch it now on Amazon

Fearless (2017)

As more and more real-life convictions are overturned or called into question by popular podcasts and documentaries (for instance, Serial, Truth & Justice, Making a Murderer, or The Innocent Man), lending a voice to Innocence Project cases across the country, it makes sense that TV dramas would follow suit. In Fearless, a six-part British miniseries, Emma Banville (Helen McCrory), a human rights lawyer, sets out to prove the innocence of a man convicted of murder 14 years earlier. Of course, in all such cases, the mystery lies at the heart of the question, "Did he or didn't he?" and Banville is willing to go to extreme lengths to find the answer.
Watch it now on Amazon

Forensic Files (1996–2011)

Forensic Files is one of those shows that’s just always on. Flipping through the channels while staying at a hotel? It's on. Any long weekend? There's probably a marathon. Given its long run, though, there's much to watch and each story of DNA analysis used to solve heinous crimes and bring them to justice is riveting and compelling. The show aired for years before true crime had necessarily even become its own, major genre, so OG true crime fans know this is one to watch, or at least throw on when you're desperate to play detective.
Watch it now on Amazon

Homecoming (2018– )

Adapted from the popular podcast of the same name, Homecoming tracks Heidi Bergman (Julia Roberts) as she tries to piece together her work as a therapist at a treatment center for veterans with PTSD. Over 10 fast-paced episodes in Season 1, the mystery of what a government contractor actually intends to do with the veterans unfolds in lockstep with Bergman's own investigation into the missing memories of her previous job. It's the rare streaming show that doesn't feel bloated, and leaves plenty of room for new storylines about others at the secretive facility to develop in Season 2 starring Janelle Monáe. 
Watch it now on Amazon

House (2004–2012)

If you're tired of police procedurals and true crime docuseries, switch things up with House, the classic medical mystery that made Hugh Laurie a star in the States. This eight-season drama focuses on the most baffling medical mysteries, which are invariably solved by Dr. Gregory House, an asshole of a doctor who gets away with torturing his residents and treating his patients like chopped liver due to his well-deserved reputation for getting to the bottom of impossible cases. House is a classic anti-hero, an addict and a destructive personality you simultaneously root for and against. Just remember, at the end of the day: It's never lupus. 
Watch it now on Amazon

Lost (2004–2010)

Long before Damon Lindelof's The Leftovers bludgeoned viewers with its bracing emotional intensity, or J.J. Abrams became the crown prince of Wookieepedia, there was a show called Lost. While it has become increasingly hip to condemn the show's later seasons for any number of faults ranging from mawkish sentimentality to an over-dependence on wonky sci-fi tropes to gooey Touched by an Angel spirituality, the show itself retains all its brilliant power when viewed in a streaming hatch, free of recaps, fan theories, and backlash. If you've never seen it, there's no better time to get wrapped up in its mysteries. And if you have—well, as Jack would say, we have to go back!
Watch it now on Amazon

The Mentalist (2008–2015)

What is mentalism, you ask? Well, it's the practice of observing minute details or a person's body language and speech to be able to read their mind (ie. picking up on their psychology). So then who is the titular mentalist in this series? That's the charming, infallible Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) who made a career out of conning people into believing he's a psychic before putting his astute skills to good use by helping the California Bureau of Investigations solve crimes. The CBS show's premise might sound familiar, but with an underlying mystery of Jane trying to track down the serial killer who murdered his family and Baker's charisma, the series is a mind reader in its own right that delivers just what fans of procedurals are looking for.
Watch it now on Amazon

The Missing (2014–2016)

The horror of losing a child gets cranked up to 11 in this pan-European anthology series, with both seasons using dual timelines to unspool the mysteries surrounding British parents who lost children abroad. In Season 1, the questions pile up on top of each other when an unexpected clue reopens a missing boy's case after eight years; in Season 2, a missing girl is reportedly found more than a decade after her disappearance. The panic and human folly inevitable in times of crisis pack each episode with tension, and you won't be able to resist watching an entire season in a weekend. 
Watch it now on Amazon

Monk (2002–2009)

If you prefer comedy to drama, Monk is the mystery show for you. The genius main character, the eponymous Adrian Monk, may be an obsessive compulsive, multi-phobic former police detective who suffered a nervous meltdown that rendered him barely able to function in regular society, but with the assistance of a private nurse, he begins to lend his detective services to the San Francisco Police Department. Of course, this can pose a challenge given the 312 phobias that prevent him from performing many typical tasks. Each episode features a new criminal investigation served with a side of comedy.
Watch it now on Amazon

Mr. Robot (2015–2019)

If you weren't already terrified about the state of modern cybersecurity, drug-addled, mentally unstable hacker Elliot Alderson—Oscar winner Rami Malek—will have you taping over your webcam in no time. Elliot is pretty much the least reliable narrator you've ever seen on screen, which makes watching Mr. Robot an exercise in scrutiny and perpetual surprises.
Watch it now on Amazon

The Night Manager (2016)

If you've always wondered what it would be like to see Dr. House transplanted into a John le Carré novel, The Night Manager scratches your bizarrely specific itch. Hugh Laurie stars as a wealthy businessman and "philanthropist," while Tom Hiddleston plays a—yep—night manager at an upscale British hotel in Cairo. Hiddleston's character somewhat unwittingly gets caught up in the back-room espionage of the Arab Spring, and, like in most of le Carré's work, the tension arises from the personal and bureaucratic mundanities of the international spy game. It's less 007 and more Mad Men, in other words, and in six one-hour episodes, you'll be finished with it in less than a workday. 
Watch it now on Amazon

Psych (2006–2014)

Another comedic take on the traditional police procedural, half the mystery of Psych lies in Shawn Spencer's (James Roday) ability to fool those around him into believing he's psychic. With highly honed observation skills, Spencer is able to identify clues that leave the police baffled, solving cases with panache and a comedic touch. With eight seasons available to stream on Amazon Prime, you'll have months' worth of lighthearted shows to help break up any penchant you have for more serious mystery TV.
Watch it now on Amazon

Undone (2019– )

It's rare to see Rotoscope animation outside of a handful of Richard Linklater movies, and Amazon's Undone is the first episodic TV series to utilize the surreal and trippy technique. It's more than a technological feat, though; the Kate Purdy and Raphael Bob-Waksberg-created series also tells a wildly compelling, funny, and heartbreaking mystery-box, reality-questioning story. After a horrible car accident puts Alma Winograd-Diaz (Rosa Salazar) into a coma, she wakes with the ability to communicate with her quantum physicist father, Jacob (Bob Odenkirk), who says he was murdered because of his research into time travel. Alma's younger sister Becca (Angelique Cabral), mother Camila (Constance Marie), and boyfriend Sam (Siddharth Dhananjay) all think she's losing it while she secretly experiments with bending time and dimension under her dad's guidance. Each 20-something minute episode is stuffed with an emotional spectrum that's draining, but Undone is so good that it's hard to stop watching until the very end.
Watch it now on Amazon

Unforgotten (2015–2018)

British investigators in this three-season drama find themselves trying to unravel 40 years of lies and cover-ups in Season 1 after reopening a troubling cold case. The challenge, of course, is how much those being investigated have changed over time, and what they're willing to risk to protect their reputations and their families. At six episodes in each season, it's the kind of show that can suck you in for an entire weekend, especially if you're partial to British crime dramas. 
Watch it now on Amazon

Unsolved Mysteries: Original Robert Stack Episodes (1988–2002)

It's the series that spawned a generation of mystery lovers and helped inspire the genres of true-crime and paranormal investigative television. Each episode of the original Unsolved Mysteries looked into cold-case murders, missing person cases, and paranormal phenomena like UFOs and ghost sightings. Now, you can watch all 12 of the original seasons—from their 1980s "cheesy reenactment" glory to their reincarnation on Lifetime—on your Amazon Prime account. Once you're caught up, you're in luck: Netflix rebooted the show in 2020.
