After a friend’s son is found dead, Soviet secret-police officer Leo Demidov (Hardy) suspects his superiors are covering up the truth.  When Leo dares to raise questions, he is demoted and exiled to a provincial outpost with his wife (Rapace).  There, Leo soon discovers other mysterious deaths with similar circumstances and convinces his new boss (Oldman) that a deranged serial killer is on the loose-and must be stopped before he strikes again.

Based on the first novel of the international best-selling trilogy by Tom Rob Smith and produced by the acclaimed Ridley Scott, the nail-biting thriller is written for the screen by Richard Price and directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House).

Bonus features on the discs include a featurette.
