The inspiration for the major motion picture, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spystarring Gary Oldman and Colin Firth The first novel in John le Carré's celebrated Karla trilogy, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spyis a heart-stopping tale of international intrigue. The man he knew as "Control" is dead, and the young Turks who forced him out now run the Circus. But George Smiley isn't quite ready for retirement-especially when a pretty, would-be defector surfaces with a shocking accusation: a Soviet mole has penetrated the highest level of British Intelligence. Relying only on his wits and a small, loyal cadre, Smiley recognizes the hand of Karla-his Moscow Centre nemesis-and sets a trap to catch the traitor. The feature film adaptation of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spyis directed by Tomas Alfredson ( Let the Right One In) and features a cast that includes Gary Oldman as Smiley, Academy Award(r) winner Colin Firth ( The King's Speech), and Tom Hardy ( Inception).
