Berlin, 2011. A former Stasi double agent, Ludwig Licht, who after the fall of the Berlin Wall works as a freelance problem solver and is the number one customer in the bar he owns in Kreuzberg, Berlin, is asked by his old CIA contact to come out of retirement and work one more case. The case involves the whistle-blowing organization Hydraleaks, whose leader, Lucien Gell, is currently off the grid. One of their members is on the run after three of her associates are assassinated in Morocco. Licht's old partner, Clive Barner, is now head of CIA's Berlin office and realizes the case may have major implications. Licht, who has borrowed money from gangster Pavel to uphold his bar, sees this as an opportunity to make some cash to get rid of his debt. Written by StalwartOfNorway

Mini review
7 May 2019 | by koezSee all my reviews

Just to begin with, this is my first movie review ever, I like movies and series like 'Bourne identity' and such, and this falls to the category in my books. I am not normally following Swedish series, which my wife likes, but because of her this pulled me in; good actors, anti-James Bond characters and good dry humour, all that made me smile and I was hooked...producers, keep up the good work, and please make another season.
