A murder attempt on Simon happens right in front of his house. Templar learns that Farnberg who he sent to prison 8 years ago is responsible for this. Farnberg stole the pay in an airbase and was jailed right after with Templar's help but the money wasn't found. Seems like he had an accomplice back then and is now back to get the money.
