Críticas:

'A Most Wanted Man is le Carre's 21st book, and another winner. This is a book about political and private corruption, and its plot revolves around the most ferociously debated policies in terror-frightened Europe. le Carre handles his material with a rare lightness of touch that's absent from most contemporary portraits of counter-terrorism: This is black, brilliant, hypnotic stuff and yet another reason to count le Carre among this country's very finest contemporary writers. Unhesitatingly recommended.' * Independent on Sunday, Tim Martin * A MOST WANTED MAN is le Carre's 21st book, and another winner.

Hamburg, beneath the prosperous surface, is a cauldron of suspicion and betrayal. . . The state itself is a malevolent parent, betraying its children's trust for dark reasons only dimly understood. . . the drawing of the humane and intelligent Annabel and the decent and honourable Brue into a world of political brutalism, blackmail and lies moves John le Carre's novel out of the playground of the adventure story and into the grown-up realm of tragedy.' * Times Literary Supplement, T.O.
