|Appearances||Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell|
Third Echelon learned of Grinko's connection to Georgian President Kombayn Nikoladze, and that he personally oversaw the murder of two CIA agents who had uncovered evidence of a possible terrorist operation Nikoladze was overseeing in Azerbaijan. Splinter Cell Sam Fisher was sent to the Georgian Ministry of Defense to track down Grinko, and was told that if he could not grab Grinko, then to grab his driver and force him to talk.
Fisher made his way down to the Ministry garage, where he found Hamlet guarding Grinko's car. As Hamlet was relieving himself in a corner, Fisher came up from behind and grabbed him, demanding answers on what Grinko was up to. Hamlet revealed that Grinko was an ex-Spetsnaz commando who now worked as a mercenary for Nikoladze, and that he was due to meet Canadian computer hacker Philip Masse in the Ministry courtyard, and that the meeting was apparently of high importance. With that, Fisher told Hamlet that they never talked, and quietly knocked him unconscious and hid him away from the Ministry security forces.It is unknown what became of Hamlet after his interrogation by Fisher.
Very little was known about Hamlet, other than the fact that he was Grinko's personal driver. He was loyal to Grinko, but only out of fear of him, as Grinko had no qualms about killing those who dared to cross him.
- Hamlet revealed that if anyone found out about his interrogation by Fisher, Grinko would kill him without a second thought, and thus worked for him out of fear.
- Fisher can kill Hamlet after interrogating him. However, Irving Lambert will reprimand Fisher who will then justify his actions by pointing out that Hamlet was "one of the bad guys". Lambert will then say it was "sloppy work".
