Anfangs hatte er geglaubt, dass die Gedanken an ihre gemeinsamen Jahre die Sehnsucht allmählich lindern und schließlich beenden würden, aber da war er sich nun nicht mehr so sicher. Anscheinend hatte er sich in seinen Erinnerungen verirrt und kam nicht mehr heraus. Sutela entschloss sich, auf einen Sprung im »Oriental Village« vorbeizuschauen, schließlich hatte er sich bei seinem Rundgang auch all die anderen Orte angesehen, die zu den Standardspaziergängen mit Marissa gehört hatten: den Bahnhof von Golders Green, die Kirche St.

General Korolkow schien allmählich besänftigt zu sein, er entspannte sich auf seinem Sessel. « Jarkow senkte den Blick. Am liebsten hätte er gefragt, wie es denn möglich war, dass nicht einmal der Chef des FSB wusste, was sich hinter dem Begriff »Schwert des Marschalls« verbarg.

Das ›Schwert des Marschalls‹ und sein Besitzer Otto Forsman müssen gefunden und beide müssen … vernichtet werden.

Wo hätte seinem Vater ein solches Dokument in die Hände fallen können? Und wann? Die wahrscheinlichste Variante war offensichtlich die Kriegszeit. Das zeigte auch das Versteck des Dokuments; die in dem Brief erwähnten Kartenkoordinaten verwiesen auf einen Ort im russischen Teil Lapplands, in der Nähe von Petsamo.
