Storyline

A man is brutally murdered by an unseen assailant. We glimpse the murder weapon: A steel spearhead with a scythe-like hook on the side, mounted on a shaft. Some days later and Jack Taylor is returning to his beloved Galway after having been away for a year. Jack is clean and sober. Now he's back, off the booze and determined to stay away from trouble; determined not to get sucked back into the cycle of death and violence again. Jack's resolve not to take on any jobs is immediately tested when the dead man's mother who knows Jack begs for his help. To complicate Jack's investigation, an enthusiastic young man, Cody, who hero-worships Jack as the best private eye in Ireland, shows up on his doorstep, wanting to be Jack's new partner in private investigations. Jack tells him to get lost. Worse, though, his old flame from "The Guards", the woman he still carries a torch for, Ann Hennessey comes back into his life when he least needs it. She is now in a relationship with a successful ... Written by Marteinn Thorisson

Underrated Thriller, Great Performances
4 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched all the Jack Taylor films and I have concluded that the Pikemen Murders is my favorite. The story is much more exciting than the first. Iain Glen's performance is brilliant as he plays the ever drunk but brilliant Jack Taylor. It's not easy playing such a charismatic alcoholic but it's so hard not to like him. The character development is much more detailed but not a drag to watch. Cody is my favorite addition to the show, he adds a bit comic relief that wasn't in The Guards. Without giving away any spoilers, watch it, if you're an Iain Glen fan and you won't regret it, but even if you're not, it's a good watch on a rainy day. :)
