A brilliant criminologist probes the dark recesses of the soul. With more than 25 major awards-including BAFTAs for best drama series and best actor-CRACKER ranks as one of British television's most acclaimed crime dramas. Robbie Coltrane (Harry Potter, Ocean's Twelve) truly inhabits his role as the brash and brilliant forensic psychologist, Dr. Edward "Fitz" Fitzgerald. For the police, Fitz's astonishing insights into the criminal mind prove invaluable, but his arrogance and boorishness make him barely tolerable as a colleague. For his family, Fitz's self-destructive compulsions-scotch, sex, and gambling--bring only pain and turmoil. Complemented by an outstanding cast, Coltrane delivers a brilliant performance as a genius who can dissect a psychopath's motives, but can't keep his own demons at bay. These powerful crime dramas examine the pressures and prejudices of contemporary urban life and the violence that they spawn.
