Locque later appears in a number of scenes, when Bond visits Cortina and sees Locque with fellow henchman Eric Kriegler and other heavies. After failing to kill Bond on a number of occasions, Locque kills Luigi Ferrara waiting in Bond's Lotus Esprit Turbo when he visits Bibi Dahl to bid her farewell.
Later murdering Countess Lisl whilst Bond and Lisl walk along the beach, Bond's life is saved by Milos Columbo's men. Bond, Columbo and his men then track Locque to a warehouse in Albania, where they flush him out. In an excellent scene Bond chases Locque in his car on foot using a series of tunnels and short cuts to emerge just in front of him. Taking his time to line up the target hurtling towards him, Bond hits Locque sending his car spinning out of control balancing dangerously on the edge of a cliff. Locque is killed when Bond coldly gives the car a good kick of the cliff after saying a few final words to him.
A known enforcer in the Brussels underworld, Locque is a cold-blooded convicted murderer that escapes from prison by strangling his psychiatrist. An assassin hired by Aristotle Kristatos, Locque leaves small dove pins with his victims to implicate Kristatos' arch-enemy Milos Columbo.
Locque is another in a long line of Bond villains who are silent, but deadly, especially looking very intimidating with his metal octagonal glasses. §
