Quirke : Christine Falls
Quirke is the chief pathologist in the Dublin city morgue – a charismatic loner whose job takes him into fascinating places as he investigates sudden death in 1950s Dublin.
His pleasures in life are raw and deep, a drink, a smoke, good food, a woman. One woman in particular – his adoptive brother’s wife Sarah – and the forbidden love that has shaped and dominated Quirke’s life.
Adapted from the novels by John Banville writing as Benjamin Black.
