THE MARKSMAN
Journalist Niels Vinter argues against the construction of the first nuclear power plant in Denmark. The consequences of an accident would be enormous. In a heated TV debate he happens to express himself rather categorically: 'to save the lives of many it might be necessary to sacrifice the lives of a few'. Somewhere in Copenhagen there's a man who agrees. He is an outstanding marksman and can act and not just talk. Through Niels Vinter he sends a message to the public: 'Every day until you stop your insane plans, I'm going to shoot one person.' When he kills his first victim the suspense builds up. Who is this marksman? Where is he hiding? What's he going to do next?
