"Dennis Lehane and Declan Hughes come to mind. Tim Hallinan's Junior bender is a PI of sorts--he's a burglar who works "cases" for underworld figures--and his books are quite funny."

"Declan Burke's Harry Rigby books might come close to that Irvine Welsh bent. Eightball Boogie and Slaughter's Hound. And, although it's set in the late 60s, Thomas Pynchon's, Inherent Vice came out a couple of years ago.  "
