Plot: THE COUNTERFEIT TRAITOR reveals the shocking true story of Eric Erickson (William Holden), a Swedish-American businessman blackmailed by British Intelligence into posing as a Nazi sympathizer while actually spying for Allied forces. When his lover and fellow spy Mariana (Lilli Palmer) is discovered and murdered in front of him, Erickson must control his anger and act like he knew nothing of her political betrayal in order to return to freedom without being discovered himself. Holden is absolutely riveting in this suspenseful thriller that explores the personal toll of espionage and compromised morality against the colorful backdrops of Stockholm, Copenhagen, Hamburg, and Berlin.
