“Jack Taylor stars Iain Glen as the eponymous hero, a maverick former Garda turned private investigator, a trouble herd-drinking loner who takes on cases that the police won’t touch. Thanks to pithy scripts and Glen’s convincing performance this is more like a homage to Hollywood noir.” –Daily Mail
