  • Trivia

    • Holmes says he bribed a chef for a room key with some rare "Swedish moose cheese".  This cheese is produced by Moose House, a 59-acre moose dairy farm in Bjursholm, in northern Sweden. The cheese comes from the milk of three moose cows, named Gullan, Haelga, and Juna. It sells for $500 a pound sold mostly to upscale hotels and restaurants in Sweden.

    • The Latin inscription in the morgue "Taceant colloquia. Effugiat risus. Hic locus est ubi mors gaudet succurrere vitae." means "Let idle talk be silenced. Let laughter be banished. Here is the place where Death delights to succor life."

  • Quotes

    • Holmes: We would in all likelihood take on work at Scotland Yard. You could continue, if not maybe, complete your education.
      Watson: Is that what you want?
      Holmes: What I want is irrelevant.
      Watson: Pretty sure it's not.
      Holmes: I was very pleased to return to London a few months ago. Not just because it is unquestionably the greatest and most cultured city on the planet, but because it made me appreciate what I have here. I've got a support system, you, Captain Gregson. Even Detective Bell. I feel that I have thrived here, not because of who I am, but because of who I have come to know. I don't really wish to give that up until I'm ready. Your turn.
      Watson: I've never met your father, not face-to-face. All I know is that he got you help when you needed it. But screw him. We can find a new place to live.
