Storyline

An Englishman, Jonathan Pine (played by Tom Hiddleston), is working as the night manager of a Cairo hotel. He gets involved with a local woman who is the girlfriend of a local gangster. Through her relationship with the gangster she has acquired information linking illegal international arms sales with Richard Roper (Hugh Laurie), an English billionaire. She is soon found dead, murdered due to her having this information. Fearing for his own life, Pine flees, ending up working at a remote hotel in Switzerland. Four years pass, and then Roper visits the Swiss hotel. This rekindles Pines thirst for revenge, and he is enlisted by British Intelligence to spy on Roper. What follows is a very dangerous game of intrigue and deception. Written by grantss

Work of Brilliance
31 March 2016 | by adigarg94See all my reviews

I would like to start with the fact that a lot of reviews for this show are by people who are comparing it to the book. We all know those comparisons result in TV Series Bashing. Ignore them.

This is a flash of brilliance with veteran actors giving their best performances. You will enjoy every moment of it and if you're anything like me, it will keep you at the edge of your seat.

The story progresses quickly, it's entertaining and the book's plot has been well executed. Sure there are some goofs and loopholes (Specially in the finale) but despite that I would want to give this mini-series a 10 because I ended up thoroughly enjoying it. There is action, drama, blasts, a love story, betrayal, alliances, guns, henchmen and more - everything that constitutes a super secret spy movie in the 21st century!

Watch it for the menacing Laurie, for the charming Hiddleton, watch it for the performance of a lifetime by Tom Hollander and Olivia Conman.. but do yourself a favor, and watch this!
