Whilst Bond is scouting Auric Goldfinger's factory in Switzerland, he hears Goldfinger talk to Mr Ling mentioning 'Operation Grand Slam'. Later when this starts to go wrong, Goldfinger shoots Mr Ling to convince the incoming troops he is on their side.
Mr Ling is a Red Chinese Agent who is an expert in nuclear fission. He accompanies Goldfinger around the world to discuss Operation Grand Slam and the 'dirty' nuclear device. When Goldfinger and his men break into Fort Knox, Mr Ling arrives and places the detonator inside the bomb and arms it.
He is happy to provide Goldfinger with the device since once activated it will cause economic instability in the West, allowing Mr Ling to capitalise on unstable markets.
