THE ASSASSIN FROM STAVANGER
- Ficha técnica
In 15th Century England, a secret Star Chamber met to decide the interests of the Crown and the course of the nation. They dispensed justice as they saw fit. The Chamber was officially abolished in 1641. Lord Harold McMann, a critic of the government's adventurism into Iraq and its dependence on oil, is struck down by a sniper's bullet. Two unassuming detectives are assigned to the case: John Dimond??a divorcee, and his partner, Jack Muldown??a bachelor approaching retirement. They were selected because of their propensity to fail. Muldown is diagnosed with terminal cancer and makes his partner promise to kill him when he can no longer care for himself. But Dimond can't bring himself to kill his friend. Evidence of the assassin discovered by the Crime Scene Investigators leads to Muldown's old nemesis from his orphanage days. The nuns referred to him back then as The Left Hand of God. Dimond makes a deal with the assassin to kill his partner. In exchange, the police files and those of his employers would all disappear. For over 400 years The Star Chamber never hesitated to murder anyone who threatened to interfere with the destiny of England and its people. It's Kill or be killed.
