Lisa Molin is a freelance Swedish assassin working for the Russian mafia in Europe. When a male assassin can’t do the job the Russian mafia sends in Lisa. Her favorite method of execution is the garrote and she also uses the Japanese jutte which is a foot long bar of solid iron with two hooks on the side that can be used to rip flesh and dislocate joints. She is an expert in taekwondo and has killed many men that way. In Korean “tae” means to strike or break with the foot and “kwon” means to strike or break with the fist and she is an expert at both. She is the last person that more than 120 men have seen before they departed this Earth and usually they departed the planet by extremely violent means.
Hans Gabriel is a union man. He sits in his office in Hamburg on the late evening of the 26th of December. Very few people work in Germany on that day and even fewer are at work at that hour. Hans is troubled. Tomorrow the devil is coming to town. Not the real devil but an asset stripper called Klaus Ballack who works for a huge Anglo-American cost cutting consortium. Tomorrow there will be a battle which Hans will lose and when he loses that battle the men and women at the factory will be forced to take pay cuts of twenty per cent. Hans does not want the union to lose the battle so he has gone out on a limb. Four days ago he took a briefcase full of Euros and went to see the head of the Russian mafia in Hamburg. A deal was made, the only deal that can save the livelihoods of his union members. The company negotiator Klaus Ballack is coming in on the night train from Switzerland. Also on the night train from Switzerland is one of the Russian mafia’s top assassins in Europe. There is no guarantee of success but Hans sits at his desk and prays for the right result.
