| A fine spy thriller that captures the feel of the era in which it is set
This six part adaptation of John Le Carré's novel of the same title opens in late 1970s West Germany as a bomb explodes in the home of an Israeli diplomat. The Israeli secret service are determined to put a stop to the attacks, which they believe are being orchestrated by a particular Palestinian terrorist. To this end a small team works to identify somebody they can put undercover in the terrorist's organisation. They select Charlie Ross, an English actress with radical left-wing associations. She is approached and ultimately recruited but can they trust her not to side with the terrorists she is meant to be infiltrating when even she doesn't know which side she will back in the end.

People expecting the style of the recent BBC adaption of 'The Night Manager' might be a little disappointed but anybody wanting a gripping drama that really captures the feel of the era should love this. South Korean Director Park Chan-wook, best known fairly extreme films like 'Oldboy' and 'Sympathy for Mister Vengeance', shows he can do restraint as we are gradually introduced to the protagonists and watch Charlie being recruited; this is not a rapid procedure. The deeper she gets the more the tension rises; approaching the final episode I had no idea how it would end for Charlie. The cast is good; especially Florence Pugh who excels as Charlie. Overall I'd say this series is well worth the effort; I really enjoyed it.
