“In his room at the Inter-Continental Hotel, at the northern end of Helsinki’s broad arterial Mannerheimintie, Bond tapped out the telephone number. It rang twice and a girl answered in Finnish.

Bond spoke in respectful English. – Paula Vacker, please.

Bond said he was at the Inter-Continental.

– Here? Here in Helsinki?’ She did not bother to disguise her pleasure.

– Yes,’ Bond confirmed, – here in Helsinki. Unless Finnair got it wrong.

– Finnair are like homing pigeons’, she said with a laugh.”
