Fourteen minutes and six seconds before she was shot in the stomach, lungs, heart, head, lungs, Karen was running. Fast, over a little bridge across the canal, past the Jap with his camera and zigzagging around tourists taking their evening walk in Bruges, Venice of the North.
What made it difficult, the running, was the straw basket she was holding in her right hand. It weighed a good five kilos and didn’t allow her to pump her arms and increase her speed. In it, on top of a pillow and under a green-and-blue tartan blanket, was her treasure. Karen’s job was to put it in safety before someone could take it away from her and destroy it. Someone who was fast closing in on her.
