In 1988 the Norwegian entrepreneur Bjørn Lyng began the construction of the biggest and most luxurious five-star timeshare hotel-complex ever built on the Canaries. With 1000 flats, each with 52 weeks to sell for 12k euros, this cash-cow attracted the attention of Englands infamous British mobster, John “Goldfinger” Palmer. Palmer found the perfect way to launder his money by infiltrating the complex with his team. The last thing Goldfinger thought was Lyng to stand up against him, but Lyng would fight back. In Crimeshare, we are inspired by this spectacular story and will go back to the 90’s to see what happened.
