It’s not often you can link Latin and turducken into a murder mystery, but this week’s episode of Longmire — the splendidly titled “Carcasses” — does so within the first few minutes.

Longmire Season 2 premiere: “Unquiet Mind” Monday, May 27 A&E, 10pm ET A nine-month hiatus has done nothing to calm the crime problems in Absaroka County, Wyo.

There’s an old sheriff in town, and his name is Walt Longmire.
