Watch Karen Pirie 2022– 123movies, Full TV Series Online – DS Karen Pirie reopens the case of a murdered barmaid. Her investigation unearths flaws in the original 1996 inquiry..
Plot: Karen is a refreshingly normal and charmingly unfashionable young woman – slick, maverick cop she is not – but her quick mouth and ingenuity make her an impressive investigator. Following her promotion to Police Scotland’s Historic Cases Unit, Karen is tasked with reopening the investigation into a murder that has been the subject of a provocative true crime podcast. When teenage barmaid Rosie Duff was stabbed to death in 1995, suspicion fell on the three drunken students who discovered her body. But despite police suspicion, the boys were never charged.
Nearly 25 years on, DS Karen Pirie is determined to uncover what happened that fateful night. Do the men know more than they previously revealed? When Karen uncovers flaws in the initial investigation, she finds herself in conflict with the very officers who led the original hunt for the killer.

Only a few consonants away from ‘Katy Perry’.
Way too easy for the partially dyslexic like me to confuse this show with a US pop goddess but I’m glad I tuned in to the first episode, regardless of initial motivations.
As a university student in the mid ’90s, the opening of this show sparked immediate nostalgia. Gareth Southgate misses his penalty at Euro 96 on the television of a pub in St Andrew’s. The rough regulars roar their raucous approval and the action cuts to a table in the corner where three posh students begin plotting the rest of their evening. A party elsewhere is mentioned then one of the three surreptitiously invites a barmaid to the event; he has to be careful as her violently protective brothers are the other side of the bar.
The quality of this opening scene, it’s intensity and vibrancy, it’s contemporaneous accuracy and credible cultural setting, immediately hook you. Especially since Podric is one of the brothers.
Breaking the mould of the mouldy old crusty detective.
Set in the university town of St. Andrews’s in Scotland, this series (3 parts, total of 4-1/2 hours( had me gripped to binge it the whole way through.
Lauren Lyle was brilliant in the eponymous role of the detective – appointed to head up a cold case (25 years past) strictly because (a) she’s a woman and the optics would look good to appease a demanding journalist and (b) being so young and inexperienced she’d be sure to fail.
I have to admit I guessed the outcome from the beginning but it did not spoil any of it for me.
It’s refreshing to see Detective Pirie in sensible policeman style heavy shoes and a lack of makeup and a short haircut. I am sick and tired of stilettoed, false-eye-lashed, long curly blond haired female coppers teetering around after the bad guys. As if their hair won’t be grabbed by some crook. Police training 101.
I do hope there are more in this series, it was so well done and the ending, even though I had mentally predicted it, took my breath away.
A rare 10/10 from me. And the other characters were very well drawn and believable.
