After you capture Thorstein and bring him to Barid, you will be given three choices on what to do with Thorstein. A dignified execution, A brutal death, and A display of cruelty.

Unfortunately, these three choices do not matter in this scenario since whatever you choose will make Barid conficate all of Thorsteins wealth and banish him from Dublin.

Stealth Guide: Thorstein's Hideout

Sneaking into Thorstein's Hideout

From the dock's bridge, take a right and climb on top of the bent tree.
Use the ropes to get to the house without being detected.
Make sure you drop down to the bush just beside the house's window to maintain your stealth.
Use Ama's key to unlock the door inside and head down to Thorstein's hideout.

Sneaking Thorstein Out of the Hideout

Jump across the same window you entered earlier.
Use the ramp beside the bush to scale the rock formation.
Check the positions of the three guards stationed in the area to determine your next path.
You can either exit Dubgaill's Landing via an opening on the wall to the left or through the main gate on the right. This entirely depends on the guards' positions.
Alternatively, you can simply drop Thorstein down in a bush first to assassinate the guards.
