A MOST WANTED MAN takes place in present day Hamburg, Germany where a mysterious, tortured and near-dead half-Chechen, half-Russian man on the run arrives in the city’s Islamic community desperate for help and looking to recover his late Russian father’s ill-gotten fortune.
Nothing about this young man seems to add up; is he a victim or a thief or, worse still, an extremist intent on destruction?
Drawn into this web of intrigue is a private British banker and a young female lawyer determined to defend the defenseless.
All the while, they are being watched by the brilliant, roguish chief of a covert German spy unit (Hoffman), who fights to put the pieces together as the clock ticks.
