Ken Bruen’s JACK TAYLOR now available on Acorn TV

Acorn Media has announced their Acorn TV site will be home for the U.S. premiere of JACK TAYLOR, the Irish series featuring the characters of Ken Bruen.

Self-destructive, pigheaded, and overfond 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.

image002Set 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. Includes three feature-length mysteries: The Guards, The Pikemen, and The Magdalen Martyrs.
