Note: The title of the main story is announced as "Fra dødelig synsvinkel" in issue no. 7 and on page 3, but the front page says "Fra en dræbende synsvinkel". Rather confusingly, both Danish titles translate as "From a view to a kill", even though this particular comic is adapted from another Ian Fleming short story, "For Your Eyes Only".
