Here's the synopsis
A prisoner on the run was employed as chief economist by a National Museum from which he syphoned off ten million crowns before being detected. The man who was serving a seven-year sentence for embezzlement escaped from a jailhouse last summer and shortly after won an open competition for the position of chief economist at the Museum under a false identity. He syphoned off a third of the museum’s annual budget before being detected and once again managed to escape as police were arresting him.
