Or as the text states: "Three assassins wait in the kitchener, with Uzi submachine guns under their jackets. They open fire through the paper-thin walls. Although the assassins cannot see their targets, they do not have a lot of space in which to miss. Therefore, their shots suffer only a -5 penalty. All assassins use area auto fire to blanket the targets in bullets."

That might be of interest.
This text makes me think that the author of the text has not been to Copenhagen or Denmark.

Some cheaply built mobile homes even lack proper sheathing. It's vinyl siding, vapor barrier plastic, insulation, and drywall. You could tear through that with a pocket knife.

I may want to run that adventure one day...but the description of the motel didn’t feel right to me. How would you rework the description of the motel? I placed it outside of Copenhagen because I just didn’t see that sort of motel in the city proper. But I’d love other ideas!

I'm not quite sure about paper thin walls in Denmark in general. It might be a thing there or not, but as far as I can remember from the houses I've been to there it isn't.

Also, my understanding is that the Copenhagen red light district is/was in Vesterbro district, specifically Istedgade and neighboring streets. Describing the houses there as a bungalow doesn't fit. Link to photo taken in Istedgade.
