I'm standing up!

That's rather obvious.

I haven't overestimated

your intelligence, have I?

It's just I'm not

in the circus

and now I'm standing up.

Yeah, you said that.


Library and study are over

there. Kitchen's over there.

I'm standing up.

Your bedroom's on the right.

There's a water heater

and soap in there.

I suggest you use it

to do something about your...

I'll be in the basement for

the rest of the evening,

as I have school... the morning.

Make yourself at home,

don't touch anything.


By the way, I had,

have a flatmate.

Goes by the name

of Igor Straussman.

Man's a morphine addict.

Idiot. Complete liar.

Thankfully for us,

he's almost...

...never home.

So, should anyone question

your presence here,

you are to say

that you are he.

I'm Igor?

Very good.

"Hello, my name is Igor."

Let's see.

A dangerous hunchback is

detained for the safety

of the public...

...with a determined and

equally dangerous accomplice.

They proceed

to the circus owner's trailer,

where they rob the safe

of its contents.

They make their violent

escape, culminating... the murder

of an innocent man,

and vanishing...

...into thin air.

A fair summing up, Alistair?

Yes, Inspector.

Escape, robbery, murder.

Just as Mr. Barnaby said.

Now here's what

I think happened, Alistair.

A human being

with a spinal deformity

is locked up against his will.

Perhaps a common feature

of his treatment here.

A stranger releases him...

...using a magnet

and tickler... any fool can.

They make their escape

urgently, as they must...

...for the circus

is against them.

They flee.

A chase.

A man dies.

Manslaughter in self-defense

at most, I would say.

"Wanted for murder."

Have it copied.

I thought you said it wasn't...
