Robbie Coltrane stars as Fitz, a brilliant criminal psychologist in "Cracker." Fitz can look at a suspected criminal and find the cracks in their almost flawless exterior. And once he's found a crack, he can break them wide open.
But Fitz himself is not without flaws. He's an addicted gambler - though loathe to admit it; a sharp-tongued, chain-smoker and heavy drinker; a married man who loves his wife and children, but can't give up his other partners, drink and dice.
But Fitz is also extremely intelligent, surprisingly funny and a little bit dangerous. A highly charismatic character who can draw people from all walks of life to him like a magnet. And in the gritty industrial town of Manchester, he's the best the local police have got. A wise-cracking, crook-cracking master of his art.
For Fitz, murder is just the beginning.
