Can any beetle fan tell what these little critters are please?

I have recently moved into an old timber frame house (c1500) in the Essex/Suffolk borders and have started to find the beetles shown in the attached image, in their death throws on the carpet under the bedroom window.  I can't find any wood dust or boreholes and don't know where they are coming from.  In the last week I have found 20 of them.


As you can see they are about 5-6mms long, and have a shiny black back with an obvious green sheen.


Can anyone help ID them please - I've tried every possible Google image search and can't find them.


Thanks in anticipation.
