Money Bomb used by Elektra King
Owned by Elektra King
Featured in The World Is Not Enough (1999)
These piles of notes were actually a clever bomb. The money was dipped in urea, a source of nitrogen in fertilisers. In one of the £50 notes, the anti-counterfeiting strip had been replaced by magnesium which acted as a detonator. When Sir Robert King got in range, his lapel pin had been switched for a transmitter, which activated the bomb.
Bond meets M for the briefing and makes himself a drink which he adds ice to. He then notices a slight smell, and a chemical reaction on his hands, realising what was about to happen. He attempts to reach the money and King in time, but is too late. §
