Ken Bruen and his Jack Taylor books


I am part way through this Galway based dark but funny, and violent, but insightful crime series of books by Ken Bruen.  The new Ireland takes some scolding, alcoholism drenches the characters, but Jack Taylor, the protagonist suffering ex-Garda carries on moving forward or perhaps falling forward.  Do read these, you will learn a lot of side information and there are a lot of references to various books and authors.  Highly recommended.    The bonus for me is that I have visited Galway, back in 1996 and liked it more than Dublin.  Bruen is so very gifted.  read him, you will be rewarded.
