A gripping, stylish and intelligent thriller
21 March 2015 | by massa-2See all my reviews

Many thanks to MHz for showing the TV adaptations of Jan Guillou's Carl Hamilton novels. Commander Hamilton is a most attractive creation. Born into nobility but politically progressive, highly intelligent and technically competent but self-effacing, disciplined and principled but not averse to evasion and deception, he's deeper and more complex than Fleming's Commander Bond.

I found the first mini-series, Enemy's Enemy, thoroughly engrossing, with complex plotting, nail-biting suspense, still relevant geopolitical background and intriguing details of political and technical strategy as well as the super cool but simpatico central character, played beautifully by the young Peter Haber. In fact I didn't think Haber could be bettered but in Vendetta Stefan Sauk has proved me wrong, adding more thoughtfulness and vulnerability to the compelling looks and natural elegance. I wish Sauk had made more series, ideally with the first Eva-Britt, the lovely Maria Grip.

Apparently, MHz plans to air all the Hamilton series. It will be interesting to compare the leads and the directors but I can't imagine the quality of the first two being surpassed. I hope whoever holds the rights will put them out on DVD -- soon.

PS: I would like to register my disagreement with Morristang-1's comments regarding the Italian series shown by MHz. I welcome the diversity of MHz's programming -- the more the better.
