CAL­LAN: The char­ac­ters

Crime Scene - - COLD CASE -

David Cal­lan:

For­mer op­er­a­tive in Se­cu­rity, now a clerk. A ba­si­cally kindly man but with a high de­gree of skill and se­cu­rity. Good pis­tol shot and a cun­ning thief. The clash of the two in­ter­ests has left him be­wil­dered as a hu­man be­ing. Lower mid­dle-class back­ground. Age 35.


Head of Se­cu­rity sec­tion. Reg­u­lar army in man­ner. Hunter’s ruth­less and well-man­nered. Makes plans like a first-rate staff officer, which in fact he is. Age 50.


Ex-reg­u­lar Ger­man Army officer, now a gun run­ner to the In­done­sians in Malaysia. Big, bluff, charm­ing, im­mensely com­pe­tent. Fond of the good things in life. Age 50.

Meres: Pub­lic school, Eto­nian man­ner. Fas­cist in out­look. An ex­e­cu­tioner who loves his job. Mid-twen­ties. Lonely: Small, ner­vous crook who suf­fers badly from B.O. and spe­cialises in ob­tain­ing firearms.
