What are you doing here? I was in the neighborhood.Decided to drop by. Why havenít you called? I miss you. You will have to forgive me- Iím heading an operation to catch… As soon as I have time, Iíll call you. You still have myphone number, donít you? Of course! Hello. Yeah. Iíll call you as soon as I can. Hi. The father is of thekidnapped child is Kononov. Heís a wealthy businessman whoprefers to stay out of the limelight. Heís raising the boy on his own. What about the mother? He won custody after the divorce. Does she have a motive? We are looking for her. What is the ransom sum? 120 thousand euroís. A strange sum. We have 48 hours. Good day! Hello. Have you had contact with the Frisbee? Yes. I specifically askednot to touch anything. Donít worry- this is his method. Who is that guy? Heís our expert. Is this how you expect to find my son? Where did it happen? Right there. We werethrowing the Frisbee around. Do you have any ideawho could have done this? Listen colonel, Iím a businessman andIíve made some enemies over the years. Anyone of them couldhave kidnapped Nikita.
Anyone of them couldhave kidnapped Nikita. You can check it for prints allyou want but there will be none. Anything? The kidnapper is a man. Thatísall I can tell you at the moment. He wore gloves. But he did hold analuminum can with an energy drink. The kidnapper drank from it. Alright. Guys, come over here. It finally happened. Soon enough you and I willbe collecting empty bottles. Going through clogged toilets. Collecting clues for our new boss. Colonel, whatís going on here? Are you cleaning thepremises or something? I found it. Judging by the smell of sweat- the kidnapper is a man. Nothing new. Katya already told us. A man of 50, gray hairedand a chain smoker. Judging by the nitrosamine count,no less than a pack per day. He has liver problems. Serious problems. What kind? Severe liver deficiency. There are traces of metilmercaptanin. He is either in the hospital, whichis unlikely, or just got discharged. When was he discharged? Three or four days ago. The scent of the hospital is very faint. A private clinic most likely. They use chlorine as disinfectant in regular hospitals- the scent is absent here. Thatís not all, is it? No. There are also tracesof some sort of spray polish. I canít quite put my finger onit. I need to get to the lab. Alex, this isnít funny anymore. Colonel. Yes, letís have a seat. I only have a minute. You have a message. What message? Oh, a note? Very romantic. Yes. (On the note) Kitten, why havenít youcalled? I miss you. Your Chocolate. I took it down word for word. Obviously itís some kind of code. Although, kittens andchocolates are very romantic. Svetochka… Dad, just one week. I canít deal with her anymore. First of all, itís mom not her. Second… Iíll talk to you later, I have work. Sit here and donít get in the way. Okay. Entertain yourself. Dad. What? Thank you. I canít give you anymore. I already prolonged thetreatment for an entire month.
I already prolonged thetreatment for an entire month. I need the pills. I have issues, Iím nervous,Iím about to lose my job. I need them. Just another month- thatís it. No. You will develop an addiction. I wonít. The Chief already asked me whyI prolonged your medication. Sign it out to someone else. Out of the question. Let me speak to your supervisor. What? I told you to call your supervisor! Maybe heís a real doctor! What have you got? There are five private clinicsthat deal with liver illnesses. 87 male patients have beendischarged in the past four days. 71 of them are smokers. 76 matchthe age range we are looking for. 41 of them have grey hair. So we have over 40 suspectsand we canít work them all. What do you have? The scent I caught onthe can is from a car. There are traces ofmineral wax and kaolin. What does that mean? Itís a car spray polishintended for used and old cars. It is usually applied before sale. To spruce the car up… You can say that. Wait a sec. Here it is! Porechnikov AndreyValentinovich. Born in 1958. Hospitalized with hepatitisC, stage two liver deficiency. He is the director of Auto Shop ìEtalonîand was discharged four days ago. You are a genius. Great, I hope you can take it from here. Iím taking a day off. Okay. If you run intoTatyana Aleksandrovna… You know, accidentally, say hi. Maxim! Yes? Get the SWAT team, weleave in five minutes. Understood. She went on unpaid leave. A holiday? Sheíll be in tomorrow. Thank you. How have you been? Great. Itís like a resort. Youíll be out soon. I worry about you. Me? Of course. A fine woman such as youcanít stay single forever. Stop it, Igor. Iíll stop when there areno more bars between us. When I can hold you. Thatís when Iíll stop. Everyone freeze! Whatís going on? SBR Colonel Lebedev!
6 w h e brain teaser SBR Colonel Lebedev!
SBR Colonel Lebedev! Where is Porachnikov? He left. When? 30 minutes ago. After ameeting with the notary. Where did he go? To the airport. He leavesfor Frankfurt today. What is this about? When is the flight? 19:20 What is the number of the flight? I donít remember. Everything is clean, Colonel. Good. Stay here. No messages, no calls or letters. Keep an eye out. If Porechnikov shows up- you tell me. Letís go. What happened? Out of the car! Hands on the roof! Mr. Porechnikov, you are charged with kidnappingminor Nikita Kononov with intent of extortion. Part 2 of code 146. You have the right to remainsilent but I donít recommend it. Whereís the kid? What kid? Are you out of your mind? What were your whereaboutsthe past two days? Think hard before answering? I was in L.A. for threedays, visiting my son! Is there anyone who can corroborate? Of course! Anyone! Ijust came back today. I still have the ticketin my coat pocket. Maxim, check it out. What is the purpose ofyour trip to Germany? I have a serious operation in two days! Iíll be late if you donít let me go. What was your meetingwith the notary about? That does not concern you. Oh, I think it does. Talk if you want to catch that flight. I was signing the shop over to my son. Iíve had some complicatedsurgeries and… We donít know what will happen. You are free to go, Mr. Porechnikov. I apologize for any inconveniences Maxim! Whatís the situationwith Kononovís wife? Nothing. We canít find her anywhere. Yes? Porechnikov is innocent. We must have missed something. Iímgoing to check everyone on that list. Maybe we are lucky and wemake the kidnapper in time. Thatís all. Shit. What? Thatís all I needed… You? Hi. What are you doing here? Came to see how my son lives now.
Came to see how my son lives now. As a mother I have that right. How did you get in here? Alex! He left. Where to? When he lived with me I alwaysknew where he went and what he does. Now you are the parent, eh? You figure it out. Where is he going to sleep? On a welcome mat by the elevator. Funny. Let him live with you for a while. You feed him, take him toschool, check his homework. I will, of course, stillregularly control all of it. You know, Iím actually glad. Iíll finally have some free time. So I could work on my love life. Also, one more thing.While the child is here… Donít bring any of your… women here. We have received your initial downpayment of 100 thousand euroís. Nevertheless you are still missingthe 120 thousand by tomorrow. Unless this happens we will be forced togive the liver transplant to another person. You will have the money tomorrow. Iím sure everything will work out. Goodbye. Goodbye. Yes, hello. We need to meet tomorrow morning. What happened? I have a problem. Apart from Porechnikov, webraced seven more suspects. They all have alibis. 33 left. Letís pray ourkidnapper is number 8 or 9. Are you certain he has a bum liver? Absolutely. The scent of necrosishepatitis ñ liver deficiency. Smokes, no melanin means he isgray haired. Plus the polish. There were and wonítbe any other smells. Yes. Take her to my office. We have guests. NikitaKononovís mother is here. On her own. I was at my motherís in Kaunas. As soon asmy friend called I came on the first flight. How is your relationshipwith your ex husband? Thank god I donít have one anymore. He is frightening man. You donít notice it at twenty. When I married him I thought he was the ideal man- strong, successful, rich. When was the last time you saw your son? A year ago. When he was taken from me. A court ruled to keepthe child with his father. Usually the child stays with his mother. Usually, yes. You donít know Kononov. This man will stop at nothing. If he wants something- he will stop at nothing. With his money andconnections it was easy! I called for a retrial twice. Have you seen Nikita this past year? No. Iím asking you, begging you. If you find Nikita, tell me. Fine. As soon as we knowsomething so will you. Thank you. Itís too early to be grateful. Will you find the exit? Yes. And again- thank you. What do you think? Nothing specific. She has a clear motive. Maxim. A Mrs. Kononova is aboutto leave the building. Put surveillance on her. Yes? Nobody touches it. Weíre on our way. The plot thickens- Kononov just got a letter from the kidnapper. How did you get the letter? Katya brought it. It was in themailbox with the rest of the mail. Where is Katya? I let her go. Nikita is not… This is your sonís hair. Polish larch. A rare tree,not usual for the city. Means your son is being heldsomewhere in the country. And… What else? A man of 50-55 years of age had contactwith the paper, gray haired, chain smoker… …with liver deficiency. That is disputable. The liversmell became a lot weaker. Divine intervention? Is that it? No, itís not. There is another smell. Gyonkuro, or the ìpreciousdropî ñ a premium Japanese tea. Made only from the upper leaves of the firstharvest, which comes around in early spring. I need your sonís hat. Preferably that was recently worn. What does ìThe liver smellbecame much weakerî mean? I have no idea. Iím just stating a fact. Here. Thank you. Goodbye. What does the letter say? I donít know. Have a look. The money must be transferred to thisDeutchebank account by 1600 today. If you fail to comply you willget your son back piece by piece. Usual intimidation. Usual intimidation? You wouldnít be sosure if it was your son. Donít panic. There is still time. Iíll make the transfer. Iím tired of your games. Statistically, 90 percent of the time the kidnapperdisposes of the kidnapped after receiving the money. No witnesses. What do you have? Huh? I donít even have a five percentguarantee that you will find my son. It is, of course, yourdecision. We will keep looking. First thing we do ischeck the bank account. Do whatever. At four- Iím making that transfer. Youíre still here? Katya lied. What do you mean? The letter Kononov receivedwas never inside this mailbox. Maxim, I need you to get me anythingyou can find on Katya the Maid. Put someone on her. Only watch her for now. Iím waiting. Why just watch her? Arrest her now! We arrest her and then what? But she is obviouslyconnected to the kidnapper! Not a fact. Maybe shewas just the middleman. Most probably she doesníteven know where the boy is. Thatís common practice- so the courier canít talk even if she wanted to. If we arrest her now- we scare off the kidnapper. This way she can stilllead us back to him. Yes. Got it. What kind of tea did yousay our kidnapper prefers? Japanese? Yes? Why? Several minutes ago Ms. Kononova entereda Japanese restaurant called ìTokyoî. Thereís your tea. Smells like the shitis about to hit the fan. Ljuda, hi! Do you haveany contacts in the police? Any? No? Nothing happened. Sorry. Bastard. These are great terms for us… What are you so pensive about? I donít understand why the smellof the liver is almost gone. How could this be? Do you have any ideas? That the kidnapper received atransplant right after taking Nikita. The operation was carried out outside ofa hospital, with no meds or painkillers. The liver then begins to function perfectlyand our guy writes a letter that same day. Probably to throw a party tocelebrate his miraculous recovery. I have no other explanations. Well I guess weíll haveto go with that then… Good day! A table for two? We need to speak to the manager. Thank you. Not a bad restaurant, by theway: the serve raw fugu here. Quite a rarity. When we are done with thecase Iíll get you some fugu. Now about that tree. Here is a map with theregions know for their larch. Three colonies. Hundreds of homes. How can I be of service? I need to speak to the staffthat was on duty this morning. Are they still here? Yes. Itís still their shift. Could you please gather them in a separateroom? This will only take a minute. Alright. Wait a minute. 120 thousand euroís. Transfer them asunforeseen expenditures. Write down the bank account details… Has anyone seen this woman? No. What about her? She was here about thirtyminutes ago. She was asking about… What was she asking about? About Leonid Anatolievich. Who? Our previous owner.He comes in sometimes. Big fan of Japanese tea.We have quite a selection. Whatís his surname? Ilyushin. Why is he a ìpreviousî owner? He sold the restaurantabout six months ago. Why? I donít know. Yes you do. The waiters are free to go. Thank you. Iím listening. He was forced out. Who? The new owner. Name? Kononov. Sergey Petrovich. Okay. How do we find Ilushin? Iím sorry, that I donít know. Yes you do. I really donít. Thank you, you are free to go. Look at the patients list. No Ilyushin. But there is an Ilyushina IrinaKonstantinovna. Born in 59. Inflamed liver cirrhosis The wife! How could I have not seenit coming? Itís so simple! The scent weakens because thecontact with its source has ceased. I am such an idiot! Maxim, I need you to get informationon an Ilyushin Leonid Anatolievich. The previous owner ofthe Tokyo restaurant. Yes, put out an APB on him. Could she have been discharged? With that diagnosis- I doubt it. Then letís pay the clinic a visit. Iím listening. Sergei Petrovich. This isRozhkov, the restaurant manager. We just had a couple ofguys from the SBR in here. They were interested inyour ex wife and maid. Katya? And Ilushin. I see. We need to see the Head Doctor. Hello, are you the Head? Hello, I am. I called you. SBR Colonel Lebedev. What happened? Which room is Ilushina in? Ilushina? She left three days ago. With that serious a diagnosis? Yes, it is a serious illness. Only a transplant cansave her at this stage. Regrettably we donítundertake such operations. So her husband took her to Germany. We will need to see room. Her room? Itís urgent. Cancel the transaction. Already? Forget it. Itís nothing. Which clinic was herhusband transferring her to? I donít know there are many thatspecialize in that sort of thing there. Did he visit her often? He didnít leave her side. He actually asked for a second bed in the room- practically lived here. Here we are. This is where Ilushina slept. Were the sheets changed? Naturally. And sprayed with disinfectant… Are any affects used by herleft after she was discharged? What do you mean? Like a cup or something… Yes. They were in a hurryand left some things. Could you please bring them? One minute. And get her file while youíre at it. Hi, girlfriend. Itís her. The same scent that wason the Frisbee and the envelope. No doubt about it. Maxim! I need you topull an address for me. Can u imagine I stopped by at Tokyoand Ilushin is not the owner anymore. Did you call him? No reply. Thatís not all. I’m being followed. Who? Who? Kononov. Who else? This asshole. Is your car here? I need it. For how long? I don’t know. I’ll leave youmine. Thank you, girl-friend. And by the way, is it your trench-coat? Ilushin sold his downtown apartmentfor chump change a week ago. His current whereabouts are unknown. Where does that leave us? Time to brace Katya the maid. Yes, Colonel. Has Katya moved? No. If she does- bring her in. We are on our way. Understood. Colonel, Kononov justpulled up. How do we proceed? Do nothing. Continue surveillance. Where is Ilushin? I donít know any Ilushin. Yes you do! Tell me you bitch! I give you a… job! And this… you… bitch! Pasha, I need you tocheck out a number for me. Helena, hello. We received the second payment. 120 thousandeuroís. The operation is scheduled for tomorrow. Will you be staying in our hotel? Yes. Good, ill book a roomyou. When is your flight? I donít know. Probably tonight. We await your arrival. Thank you for everything youhave done for us Helena. Goodbye. Goodbye Mr. Ilushin. Colonel. Kononov just left.He is getting in to his car. Understood. We wait. Nikita, time for dinner. When are we going to see Daddy? Soon. Your mommy not daddy. Hello, itís Ilushin. Come here soon. We need to talk. Kononov was the assailant. Also the kidnapperwas here… this morning. Whatís his name? Ilushin. Bring me water. A confession will significantlyimprove your chances. We know youíre in cahoots with Ilushin. Katya, whereís Nikita? A rare tree grows in the vicinity of the housewhere the kid is being held. Polish Larch. This map shows that it grows somewherearound these three settlements. Is it Otradnij? Or Klitsi? Or maybe Trigorka? See Katya? You didníteven have to spell it out. The kid is in Trigorki. We need tolook for the house with rosebushes. He is a bastard… he isscum… He killed my father. ìHeî who? Kononov. He, Ilyushin andmy father were partners. Six months ago Kononov demandedthey sell their shares for peanuts. My dad refused, so didIlyushim. Then Dad disappeared. Leonid Anatolievichí wife is very sick.He got scared for her and conceded. Why did you take the job? I wanted to avenge my father. I was going through hise-mails, his computer files. Trying to find proof of hisconnection to fatherís death. And then LeonidAnatlievich contacted me. To help set Nikitaískidnapping in motion? Ilushin needed money forthe surgery. Itís only fair. Kononov took everything from us. You shouldnít be worried about Nikita.Leonid Anatloievich is an honest man. Did you talk to police concerningyour dadís disappearance? I did. Heís still missing. But Iím sure Kononov killed him. Kononov is a murdered, a murderer. Where? Good. Leonid Anatolievich, so good you called. Been looking for you all day. My son was kidnapped. Take it easy, come in. You donít get it. He was kidnapped. By Kononov. You two wereaffiliated back in the day. Mummy! Nikita! Son! You did it? Why didnít you call me at once? I was waiting for thetransfer to land. Sorry. I couldnít have acted differently. You couldíve given yourself away. Here. What is it? Train tickets and money. Train tickets? What train tickets? Take Nikita and leaveimmediately. You canít stay here. Go where? Why? Kononov is going to prison.We found proof of his crimes. You can come back later with Nikita. Leonid Anatolievich, thank you so much. I knew youíd help. You always have. Iím sorry I made yougo through all this. But I couldnít have acteddifferently, I swear. Thank you. Ok, Nikita! Wanna go with your mom? If Daddy thinks itís okay. You can take the frontseat. Itís okay this time. You bitches plotted against me. Bitch! Serezha, what are you doing? My sonís kidnappers had anargument over the ransom money. One killed the other.With this very poker Tragically I came too late to save you,but freed my son by killing Ilushin. In self defense of course. Our best table. Enjoy your meal.Iím right here if you need me. Thank you. Theyíre bringing fugu. Andanything else you might want. Like I promised. Take what you want, donít be shy. Did you get a bonus? Itís on the house. He couldíve beenin a cell as an accomplice right now. Well done. By the way.Any news about Kononov? Kononov? Heís going toprison. For a long time. Takeovers, taking out the competition. Including Katyaís father. She did find quite a lot of dirton him. Sheís a good spy this one. So what? This isnít real fugu. Real fugu lives in the sea, eatsvenomous mollusks and stars, producing copiousamounts a poison called ñ tetrodoxin. This was probably raised in anaquarium on worms and fish food. Do you enjoy anything? Anything at all? Yes. Honey, why donít you call me? Iím on a business trip. In Japan. In Japan. Listen, Iíll call you backwhen I come back. Canít hear you. Hello? Hello?
