Quirke

Quirke

Based on the John Banville novels written under the pseudonym Benjamin Black, the series follows the eponymous Quirke, a charismatic loner and chief pathologist in a 1950s Dublin city morgue. Each episode sees him investigate the death of one of the unfortunate souls who end up on his mortuary slab but as Quirke turns accidental detective he discovers his investigations are often more closely linked to his own life than he could ever have imagined. Little by little he is forced to confront the sins of his past as he peels back the layers of his own tangled family history.
