Summary
A hitman is a mysterious loner. Getting his instructions at the airport before leaving for Madrid, he is told simply to go to a café and look for the violin. Further instructions come from various people he meets along the way and each is a part of his dangerous mission. He uses a coded greeting and exchanges matchboxes, one of which contains a curious code which the hitman simply eats. He prefers two cups of espresso served in separate cups and practices Tai Chi. He likes women because he is tempted by naked beauty
