    one aspect of FII i really enjoyed was how they let us in on Lund’s detection process:eg. we followed it along with her and saw how it worked. T’was not rocket science it was simply picking apart the assumptions:taking it back to the very beginning of events and before even that.

    For ex. Lund was questioning the simplicities of assumptions other people had made. Plus the connections:eg. who met who? and when? Did x know y? When did that happen. How was that message relayed-was there a radio? How did that particular process of that organisation work? who knew what and when and how? It was like watching someone unpick and intricate piece of weaving thread by thread that everybody else had taken for granted.

    Then even questioning who chose the thread, the colours, and how did that even come about? I found it fascinating. Since it is assumptions, as we know, that can be our downfall and that is what it seems to me that Lund unravels, thread by painstaking thread. Plus the randomness of events and occurrences.

    eg. Her final piece of the puzzle was the random (or not so?) presence of Strange at the hearing and figuring out that Dragsholm avoided getting any Police security, hence she was suspicious of the Police. and so on-brilliant stuff. Like being let in on Sherlock Holme’s thought processes..
