I must have been up at 00.20 on Wednesday morning because I watched a few minutes of an fascinating Irish-Danish cooperation the TV crime series Proof. I put the recorder on for the the end of episode one and episode two watching them last night, and then recorded the remaining two episodes for watching at my leisure.
Proof is very hard gritty violent noir with a plot that involves an upcoming Irish election campaign, and the search for an Albanian girl.
I found it difficult to work out who was more creepy, the smiling Myles Garrick the potential Irish Taoseich [Prime Minister], or the disgusting Eastern European gangsters trafficking in women.
This program is certainly another encouragement to delve into the world of Irish crime fiction.
