I'm on duty every day of the year.

Except 3 weeks in August.

December 5.

Does it have to do with a man?


A man who said he had an accident...

An automobile accident.

He might have said that.

What's your question?

What happened to him?

First, he pointed out on the map.

Where the accident happened.

Then he gave me his

name and address in Zurich.

And then he hired Johan...

he owns the taxi here...

To take him to Zurich.

Why do you remember him so well?

There was no automobile accident.

The name was false,

And there was no such address in Zurich.

It's easy to remember.

Do you mind if I go in here for a while?


There are 2 men coming

in I'd rather not see.

Are they looking for you?

They don't know I'm here.

All right,

But close the door.

Maybe I don't want you to

hear what they are going to say.

Fair enough.

Good morning.

I wonder if you might

be able to help me.

I am interested in something

that happened last December.

Well, I am on duty

here every day of the year.

Except 3 weeks in August.

Did you see or hear

anything about an injured man.

In the area around December 5?

A man who might have been.

In an automobile accident?


I remember a man who

came in about that time.

In an automobile accident.

He didn't seem to be hurt.

I got him a taxi, and he left.

Does the taxi driver live here in town?

Mm-hmm. Just down the street.

There's a sign.

It says "taxi."

Thank you very much.

Excuse me.


Why are you interested in this man, too?

You sound as though somebody else.

Has been interested in him.

That's right.




There was a plane crash.

A passenger we assumed

was killed might not have been.

Oh, the crash on the glacier.


Of course. I should have

thought of that before.

Well, that explains everything.
