About Jackson Brodie
Jackson Brodie is a private investigator, originally from Yorkshire. A former soldier and policeman he now makes his money working from investigating infidelity and finding missing cats. Jackson’s tough-guy exterior belies a deeply empathetic heart. He’s unable to resist coming to the rescue and increasingly he becomes a magnet for the bereaved, the lost and the dysfunctional. His ability to connect comes from his own tragic childhood that still haunts him.
Jackson Brodie was played by Jason Isaacs in the TV series Case Histories brought to BBC One by Ruby Films.
‘Like all good detectives, he is a hero for men and women alike.’
– The Times
‘A tender curmudgeon and solver of mysteries whose appeal lies in the fact that he remains a mystery to himself.’
