Bond: "It won't look like a suicide if you shoot me from
Kaufman: "I am a professor of forensic medicine. Believe
me, Mr Bond, I could shoot you from Stuttgart und still create
the proper effect."
A trick shot assassin, he travels the world and is in great demand.
As well as having a doctorate in forensic medicine he also has
a hobby for torture, which he is quite gifted at.
Dr. Kaufman having already killed Paris Carver, is given the
seemingly simple task of assassinating Bond and making it look
like 007 was responsible for the death of Paris. Not quite as
easy as it appears.
Dr. Kaufman only appears once as he is completing
his assassination assignment. He strangles Paris Carver to death
before waiting for Bond to arrive at her hotel room. His seemingly
simple trap falls foul of Q-Branch when he uses Bond's phone to
try an unlock the 007's car. The high-voltage stun charge gives
Bond enough time to turn Kaufman's gun on himself.
