It's interesting that you mention that. One of the things that I thought about while watching Samourai is that the Delon character is loosely employed as a hitman by some amorphous organization, similar to the protagonist in Manchette's Gunman. While I certainly can't generalize from just that, I did wonder if French hard-boiled/noir fiction shows some predisposition towards the hitman/organization scenario.
