A film noir crime series set in Dublin in the 1950s. Based on the novels by Benjamin Black aka John Banville.
Quirke, played by Gabriel Byrne, is the Chief Pathologist in the Dublin City Morgue. He becomes curious about the deaths of people that now grace his place of work in the form of cadavers.
I guess you could say his work is dead interesting.
Michael Gambon also stars as Judge Garret Griffin.
The DVD set contains 3 feature-length episodes (each 90 minutes long). These stories are taken from different books in the Benjamin Black collection.
Great to see that the series was shot in Dublin. Irish viewers will have the added interest of watching to see what locations were used.
