Privately, he is the leader of a criminal organisation with ties all over Europe and has made millions in criminal ventures. Gundersen has never been caught or arrested, making him feel safe as he travels freely around the world. Gundersen's first name is revealed in 'Murder on a Sunday Morning' - but he still has many secrets. Described as well-dressed and looking ten years younger than his 47 years, he prides himself on being the perfect host. He is a man, who withholds his thoughts even from his closest confidantes.

Carter, a man with a past he does his best to hide, who has connections to mercenaries in Europe.
Alisa, Gundersen's confidante, an aristocrat, who murders for protection and sells new identities to those who can pay.
