Fitz returns to Manchester after living 10 years in Australia with his wife and youngest son. He is soon drawn into the investigation of a British soldier who may have been traumatized by his years serving in Northern Ireland.
A series of brutal sex murders disturbingly similar to the pattern of Superintendent Jane Tennison's first major case leads to the awful suggestion that she may have caught the wrong man the first time.
This mystery series from the U.K. outlines the adventures of a psychologist employed by the police to aid them in profiling and questioning suspects. "Fitz" (Robbie Coltrane), an avowed drunkard and gambler, has an uncanny knack for boring directly into the hearts and minds of his subjects, many of whom may in fact be saner than he is...

Excellent crime drama provides insight... and some laughs
Unlike the U.S. version, the U.K. version of Cracker is smart, witty, funny, insightful, and often touching. Robbie Coltrane is excellent as Fitz, the criminal psychologist, and the entire cast works together very well. This TV series is worthy of the big screen. I'm hoping they will make more episodes!
