Any innkeeper, jarl, or hold steward can give you this quest. You will be directed to one of the possible bandit locations in the same hold, and you will then need to obtain your reward from the jarl or steward of the hold.
 Quick Walkthrough
- Get the bounty.
- Kill the bandit leader.
- Return to the jarl or steward for reward.
 Detailed Walkthrough
Asking an innkeeper, jarl's steward, or jarl about work may lead them to give you a letter of bounty on a bandit leader, located in a dungeon in the hold you are in. Head to the dungeon and kill the bandit leader. Once they're dead, return to the jarl or jarl's steward for your reward.
- The "bandit leader" might be a standard low-level bandit.
- If the ruins are cleared out before the quest is given to kill the bandit leader, the ruins may not repopulate, causing this quest to not be completable.
- To fix this, approach the boss and open the console. After clicking on him, type
resurrect 1. This will bring him back to life and allow you to complete the quest.
