Goofs

A clue in the case was carefully reading a damaged German Banknote from 1940, which spelled out "DEUTSCHE MARK", though they were actually known as "Reichsmarks" from the Weimar republic to Nazi era, and not rechristened until 1948. See more »

Inexpensive.

Though I appreciate their trying to keep things fast-moving, what becomes obvious is that there's an awful lot of driving around sequences. Going south, coming north, chasing them through a grimy section of London, them being chased out in the country, etcetera. The cast are very few in number, so police, Mi5 and the super wealthy international crook seem to have staff of less than five people. So the cheapness does get in the way of believability. The illogical way the key clue suddenly dawns on Strange is utter genius or merely miraculous. Once again, the villain of the piece is a business man. In this tale of wartime treachery, it might have made more sense to show some sort of Moselyite or even communist group(considering the Soviets were allies with the Nazis in 1940) as in on the dirty deed at the center of the story.
