What were you doing there?
I told you. I went to talk to him.
I don’t know his name.
You went to talk to someone whose name you do not know?
We saw him that afternoon. Before Hanna died. We went for a walk and Hanna said something about how if we bored her that night she would go and find him, and I thought maybe —
Why didn’t you tell us before?
I only just thought of it. Remembered him, what Hanna said —
Why did you go to talk to him yourself?
I don’t know — I guess I thought maybe — I mean, it’s a pretty long shot. If I came to you with every harebrained idea or thought I’ve had you would be pretty bored.
We would not be bored by potentially useful information in a murder case.
I thought maybe he would be more open, more likely to remember something more in a casual conversation with one of her friends than if we was interrogated — and then I would have something solid to —
Why did you walk through the back woods?
It’s the only way I could find the farm, by re tracing our steps that day. Look, I don’t understand what the big deal is. Was I trespassing? I was going to go knock on his door —
Sven Jörgensson is dead.
He was killed yesterday.
No — how can — ?
Why did you want to talk to him today?
I told you. I just thought of it —
Did you know he was dead?
Do I need a lawyer?
