Overview

Kicked off Ireland’s police force for booze-related infractions, now working as a “finder” (private eye) in Galway, Jack Taylor takes on cases the cops won’t touch. Based on the bestselling crime fiction by Ken Bruen, this acclaimed Irish series stars Iain Glen (Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey) as Taylor: battered, disheveled, hard-boiled, and a softhearted defender of the lost and broken. Set includes three feature-length mysteries: The Guards, The Pikemen, and The Magdalen Martyrs. 4 ½ hrs, 3 DVDs, SDH. Mature audiences.

Episode 1 The Guards
After a series of apparent suicides that have left four young women dead, a worried mother hires Taylor to find her missing 18-year-old daughter. But something about his new client makes the detective uneasy. While getting to the bottom of the earlier deaths, he discovers that the mother may have an ulterior motive for her search.

Episode 2 The Pikemen
Determined to restore law and order, a group of local vigilantes known as the Pikemen is meting out its own brand of rough justice on the streets of Galway. Taylor comes face-to-face with the group during one of his investigations but soon ends up on the wrong side of the law himself.

Episode 3 The Magdalen Martyrs
Taylor is hired to look into past abuses at the infamous Magdalen laundries, the city’s home for “wayward girls.” The daughter of a former inmate wants him to track down a woman called “Lucifer,” a particularly brutal nun who worked there. In the wake of two execution-style murders, Taylor realizes he’s not alone in searching for Lucifer.

Really good stories with great interplay between the characters! Loved all of them.

I didn't expect much from this set (about yet another hard-drinking Irish cop), but it turned out to be very well done and very Irish in mood. Iain Glen is wonderful. My favorite was The Pikemen, which I originally thought I would like least. That episode turned out to be a very personal family story that made sense and not just another violent tale of vicious young men.
