I would say the favorite of this
years literary award of Monte
Carlo is clear.
He is talking in a disappointed mood.
MONTE CARLO COUNCELOR FOR
thrillers, criminal stories,
murders and kidnapping are
prevalent genres among the works
of the nominees. Historical novels
or love stories have become really
scarce. What might be the reason
in your opinion?
MONTE CARLO COUNCELOR FOR
SPORTS If we achieve a status of national
importance for soccer and obtain a
few excellent players, Monaco
will become truly resistless.
MONTE CARLO COUNCELOR FOR
I will definitely raise this
question; it is also a part of
politics and a matter of prestige.
We are already at the forefront in
many areas such as art and
cultural affairs, quality of life
and welfare issues. Why can't we
improve the matters of sport as
MONTE CARLO COUNCELOR FOR SAFETY
I expect to receive a comprehensive
report about the case and the entire
investigation from the head of

The incident has shocked our
inhabitants. People are anxious and

I am really pleased about the
invitation of such a famous and
reliable investigator to examine
the case. We will make use of his

opposite side of the conference table.
Honorable Mesdames et Messieurs. We
have gathered here to meet
personally our guest who will have
to perform a very delicate
professional task - to help our
police to accomplish the
investigation of the case which has
meanwhile interrupted the pristine
and tranquil life of our acclaimed
Principality. It is a high profile
criminal case not common in our
peaceful monarchy. It has struck a
chord with public consciousness to
such an extent that all citizens and
we, first of all, are engaged in the
investigation. We support the
decision of the head of Criminal
Investigations Department to invite
you Mr. Special Agent to join this
investigation for his notable
experience and excellent reputation.
Monaco Principality. I appreciate
your trust in my expertise and I
am extremely honored.
Special agent is speaking and trying to follow the same
tone of the gentlemen who have previously spoken.
I will do my best not to disappoint
you and to unravel this suspicious
incident in the briefest delay
possible. The professionalism of
Monte Carlo police and the peaceful
life almost free of delinquency of
Monegasques will really help aid me
in my work. Thank you for the honor
and trust expressed upon me.
I know a lot about your
achievements, I did some research
myself. And you know, my nephews and
nieces are now fond of playing a
criminal game - the bandit is hiding
and the agent is hot on his heels.
Being a hero in a children's game
gains implicit recognition.
Special Agent smiles.
We wish you quick success.
Let's drink to that.
