Based on a novel of the same name by Alan Furst this series tells the tale of spying between the wars where the stakes were high and you never knew what was around the next corner. As with all of Furst's novels there is also a love interest in the series, between a French spy and a French-Polish woman he meets on the diplomatic circuit in Warsaw. But the frenchman is there in Poland to keep an eye on the germans and what they are up to and while the series does take a little while to get started once it does then the action is frenetic as the varying opposing forces try to outdo each other and get the information that their country is looking for. In between all of this there are other stories intertwined such as the Soviet ambassador and his wife asking for help before they are forceably repatriated home which means only one thing. An interesting programme beautifully filmed and acted, showing that despite what we think life was always complex and complicated.
