Die Hard Wiki
"Attention! Attention! Nils is dead! I repeat, Nils is dead, fuckhead!"
―John McClane mocking Nils to Simon Gruber.

Nils was a German terrorist and one of Simon Gruber's henchmen.

Die Hard with a Vengeance[]

Nils was inside the bank, posing as a repairman trying to repair the security systems of the Federal Reserve Bank that was forced to shut down after a bomb goes off in the Wall Street Station near the bank. Then when Simon and others arrived, he and Klaus break cover and kill the security men in the electric room. Nils was among the men near the control room as he awaited for the last security men to be killed. When Katya finally kills the guard, Nils joins the others in the security vault, and help load the gold into the dump trucks.

Nils was driving in a dump truck full of gold stolen by Simon along with Klaus along the Franklin D. Roosevelt East River Drive. Later, they stopped at New York City Water Tunnel No. 3 in the city's aqueduct waiting for Simon to call them. Soon, New York cop John McClane and truck driver Jerry Parks stopped behind them and McClane stepped outside towards Nils' dump truck posing as an aqueduct security officer. Klaus told Nils to wait until McClane was alongside the door and then shoot him. McClane surprised them by suddenly shooting through their truck door with his Beretta 92, thus killing Nils and Klaus. Nils was Simon's fifth henchman to die followed by Klaus.
