Follows the complicated life of intelligence officer John Tavner, whose latest assignment - to prevent Iran from going nuclear - requires him to forgo all safety nets and assume a perilous non-official cover.
John Tavner doesn't really fit in with his quirky colleagues at the industrial piping corporation where he works. They don't really know much about him, but what they don't realize is that his life has been anything but mundane. To prevent Iran from going nuclear, he has assumed a fake persona as an average businessman when in reality he is actually a highly skilled intelligence officer, who took the piping job because of the routine business trips to Luxembourg, and because the job is secluded and too dull to be noticed. Unfortunately for him a European cop is at his heels trying to discover who he is, his incessantly grim and nervous coworker Mr. Icabod has figured out that he isn't who he says, and Steven, a chubby employee with a recent brain injury, is starting to remember a horrible act which John may have inflicted.Written by

Amazon give your best show a 3rd season to wrap things up!!
I almost don't want to give away a thing. That is how I came across this show by chance. I got lucky. Unfortunately Amazon never promoted properly or adequately so it's remaining a hidden gem. I'll just say if you like unexpected comedy, puzzle drama, music, and great cinematography, go watch this now if you haven't yet.
