Komm bald nach, Liebling«, sagte sie. « Er erwiderte nichts. Sie blieb noch einen Augenblick in der Tür stehen und betrachtete ihn. Mit seinen zweiundvierzig Jahren sah er immer noch jung aus. Ihm war nie bewusst gewesen, wie attraktiv er eigentlich war – eine, wie sie fand, ebenso anziehende wie seltene Eigenschaft bei einem Mann. Allerdings war er nicht anspruchslos, wie sie im Lauf der Zeit festgestellt hatte. Ganz im Gegenteil: Alles, was ihn intellektuell nicht forderte, war ihm in höchstem Maße gleichgültig.
Meine Frau und ich sind nach Frankreich gezogen, in ein Haus gleich hinter der Grenze. Ist billiger. Allerdings muss ich jetzt jeden Tag nach Genf reinfahren. « Von draußen waren die Geräusche eines Dieselmotors zu hören. Gabrielle steckte den Kopf zur Tür herein. »Der Krankenwagen ist da. « Hoffmann versuchte aufzustehen. Leclerc wollte ihm helfen, aber Hoffmann winkte ihn weg. Schweizer, dachte er säuerlich.

Die Zahlen waren ihm ein Rätsel, er konnte sie genauso wenig entschlüsseln wie die Inschrift auf dem Stein von Rosette. Wenn er den Schlüssel fände, dachte er, dann könnte er vielleicht genauso reich werden wie dieser Kerl. Die Geldanlagen, die er sich vor ein paar Jahren von einem pickeligen »Finanzberater« für seinen eigenen komfortablen Ruhestand hatte aufschwatzen lassen, waren jetzt nur noch die Hälfte dessen wert, was er dafür bezahlt hatte.
