Storyline

George Smiley meets Sir Saul Enderby, his successor as the head of the Intelligence Service, to review the materials obtained by Otto Leipzig. The Ginger Pig, Oleg Kirov, revealed that Karla - the head of the KGB's 13th Directorate that specializes in the placing of moles into Western society - assigned him to create a legend for a young woman. He also authorized the transfer of CHF10,000 per month to the account of a Mr. Glazer in Thun, Switzerland. Enderby asks George to take charge of the investigation and he soon finds himself in Bern along with Toby Esterhase and several of the operatives from his days as Chief. They quickly conclude that Glazer is in fact a Soviet diplomat named Grigoriev who, in recent months, has considerably improved his lifestyle by moving out of the Russian diplomatic ghetto and acquiring a Mercedes. He not only only withdraws the money every month but also visit a private medical clinic weekly. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Oliver Lacon: We're birds of a feather, George. We're both patriots. Givers, not takers. Trained to our Services, our country... We must pay the price. You know, if Ann had been your agent instead of your wife, you'd probably have run her pretty well.
