Based on the first of a trilogy by Tom Rob Smith and set in the Stalin era of the Soviet Union. The plot is about an idealistic pro-Stalin security officer who decides to investigate a series of child murders in a country where supposedly this sort of crime doesn't exist. The state would not hear of the existence of a child murderer let alone a serial killer. He gets demoted and exiled but decides, with just the help of his wife, to continue pursuing the case.Written by
All the officers seen are wearing shoulder board insignia. The insignia shown, with the blue trim and blue center strip are indicative of the "Aviation Branch". Based on the duties and locations of the officers, they are definitely not Aviation. The shoulder boards should have red trim with a red stripe signifying ground forces. See more »
