It transpires that the department of Control believed that one of the four senior figures in the service was in fact a Russian agent, a mole, and the Hungary operation was an attempt to identify which of them it was. Smiley had been forced into retirement by Control, but is asked by a senior govt figure to investigate a story told to him by a rogue agent, Ricky Tarr, that there was a mole. Smiley considers that the failure of the Hungary operation and continuing success of Operation Witchcraft confirms this, and takes up the task of finding him.
