As stated on the front page, "007 - med ret til at dræbe" (1989) is a novelization of Michael G. Wilson and Richard Maibaum's screenplay for "Licence to Kill", the 16th James Bond 007 film made by EON Productions.

This book marked the beginning of a short-lived run of John Gardner-penned Bond novels translated into Danish. Seven of Gardner's sixteen Bond books were published by Winthers forlag between 1989 and 1991.

Note: The Danish translator of Gardner's "Licence to Kill" inexplicably insists on misspelling Felix Leiter's name as Felix Leitner throughout the book.
