Product Description

Jack Taylor is an Irish ex-cop, on the wrong side of forty who has become a finder with a sharp tongue and a soft heart. He takes on the cases The Guards won’t touch, no matter how hopeless. He’s pig stubborn. He defends the lost and the broken. He’s good because he looks where no one else looks, talks to the people no one else talks to. Moreover, he knows every back street in his hometown, Galway, knows the seed and breed of everyone in it. But small towns have big memories, and like Jack they are quick to anger and slow to forgive.

 

Based on the novels by Ken Bruen and starring Iain Glen (Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey), Nora-Jane Noone (The Descent, The Magdalene Sisters), and Killian Scott (Love/Hate, Single-Handed) this DVD collection brings together the next three stories; The Dramatist, Priest and Shot Down.

JACK TAYLOR, (2010), Set 2. Broadcast in the U.K. in 2013, and located in and around beauteous Galway on Ireland's rugged western coast, Ken Bruen's bestselling crime novels leap to life in this acclaimed series of Irish television movies featuring Jack Taylor. The title role, self-destructive, pigheaded, and the shady side of 40, is fully inhabited by the Scottish Iain Glen, who holds down significant supporting roles in the two biggest TV hits currently around, DOWNTON ABBEY and GAME OF THRONES. These hardboiled mysteries find their protagonist, kicked off Ireland's police force for booze-related infractions, apparently gaining nothing from his years on the Garda but a threadbare overcoat, now working as a "finder" (private eye) in his native Galway, taking on, from his favorite barstool, cases the cops won't touch. He's battered, disheveled, hard-boiled, and shows himself, every so often, as a softhearted defender of the lost and broken. Exteriors are filmed in Ireland; interiors, in Germany, as the series was financed by a German company. However, be warned, it's for mature audiences only, containing coarse language, nudity and violence.

The episodes are:

The Dramatist
While continuing his attempt at sobriety and healthier living seven months after his mother's stroke, Jack is asked to investigate the death of a female university student, who has fallen from a roof while in theatrical costume. A letter attached to her wrist appears to contain a suicide note written in her blood; the Gardai assume the death to be drug related.

Priest
Jack investigates the death of a priest who has been beheaded in church, and discovers the cleric abused two boys several years earlier, was then sent to Boston, from which he has just returned.

Like series one, this set of DVDs follows the same gritty storylines with no puches pulled. Well scripted, acted and the filming is excellent, I look forward to series 3.
