Hamilton is a high-concept, international spy-thriller, based on the iconic novels and characters by Swedish author Jan Guillou. 10 million copies of Hamilton novels have been sold throughout the Nordic territories, making it one of Scandinavia's most successful literary properties ever. The first season is centered on Swedish Carl Hamilton's first mission as field operator working for the Swedish military intel agency. The story evolves around a cyber conspiracy, amid the resurgence of a new cold war between East and West in the nordic region. Hamilton's values, loyalty and mental health are put to test as a false-flag operation is set into motion and events run out of control.
