"It is an alarming," Lutz began, "indeed an increasingly frightening thing to behold the degree to which criminology in this country is still in its infancy. God knows I'm used to inefficiency in our canton, but the procedure that is evidently considered the natural course to take in the case of a murdered police lieutenant casts such an appalling light on the professional competence of our village police that I am still horrified."
"Rest assured, Dr. Lutz," Barlach replied, "our village police are as fit for their job as the police in Chicago, and I'm certain we'll find out who killed Schmied."
"Do you have someone in mind as a suspect, Inspector Barlach?"
Barlach gazed at Lutz for a long time and finally said, "Yes, I have someone in mind, Doctor Lutz."
