of hiding places.

- Further details.

- The request is turned down.

All are equal before the law.

Even the head.

Everyone observes the autonomous

responsibility of their own sector.

Watertight compartments, efficiency.

No risk of blabbering

and limited damage

in case of accident.

And that's what I say.

Special instructions?

No, I want daily reports.

- This is your right.

- Goodbye.

Call Pierre Garen.

Follow Franz.



No questions.

Report twice a day.

On Franz?


- Carry it out. Goodbye.

- Goodbye.

Excuse me Sir.

But here's a message

which arrived earlier,

while Sir was in the gardens.

and that I forgot

because of the commotion.

I should point out that it was

the cause of my delay

in rejoining Sir.

The instructions

for freeing the prisoner

will be given at the point marked

with a cross on the photograph.

I apologize to the gentleman.

But it seems to me that the thing

becomes jolly exciting!

It could be something serious.

Perhaps there was only a mistake

in the layout of the script.

And tonight... or tomorrow...

So you think

I'm going to be kidnapped.

And what will they

do with me in their lair?

- Good morning.

- Yes?

You have technical and moral prejudices

against sadism?

No. Just don't overdo it.

What do you like?


Rather the whip.

Cigarettes, trestle and nettles,

swabs soaked in alcohol,

and so on.

It's a demanding genre.

And these things are expensive.

Sure. We'll fix the price

and pocket the money.

And no one will ask your opinion.

Contact Julien Jacques,

your pimp.

Don't make such a fuss.

Write him a nice little note.

He'll have to turn

quite a few tricks

if he wants to regain his capital.

Rectifying the error in pagination,

the kidnap could take place equally...
