    Watch out, spoiler alert!



    This is an unusual episode in that it uses flashbacks and has a peculiar ending. The murder happens early in the story and the background of each suspect is then told through flashbacks. The act of solving what turns out to be less than a crime, does not have a clear turning point. All of a sudden Father Brown seems to know what has happened. (In other episodes this might be caused by a simple remark that he overheard.) The murder was actually a suicide. It's his knowledge of psychology that helps Father Brown see the light.



    A highlight is Father Brown's flight from prison when the suspect tries to sabotage the investigation by confessing to the priest. Still, you get the idea that some plot holes were paved over too easily.moreless
