Description

Based on the bestselling crime fiction by Ken Bruen Self-destructive, pigheaded, and over-fond of the bottle, Jack Taylor (Iain Glen, Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey) is a forty-something ex-cop trying to earn a living as a private detective in his native Galway. Taylor has burned a lot of bridges, but he still has a knack for uncovering ugly truths. In his new trade, Taylor finds evil at every turn: the serial murders of young female factory workers, a vicious vigilante group executing summary justice, and a sadistic nun dubbed “Lucifer” by her former charges. Set against the rugged backdrop of western Ireland, this crime noir series depicts a country in transition, caught between the certainties of the past and the anxieties of a post-bubble future. Those same strains play out in the life of Jack Taylor, a man seeking to reinvent himself in a community with a long memory and an uneasy attitude towards change.

Customer Reviews

Excellent series.

Disclaimer: I have never read any of the books.

That being said I think that this is a very interesting and entertaining mystery series. Having family from Ireland, having travelled there a few times, it's great to see the Irish countryside and culture portrayed on the screen again. Kudos.

So many detectives named Jack...

I needed a show similar to that of Luther starring the very talented Idris Elba--Jack Taylor was what I encountered and so far it satisfies me. It's not as dramactic and gory as Luther, however. American crime shows are lukewarm.
