To the great surprise of Rubin and Karow, Dennis and Julia turn up at their place. They explain that they had consensual sex with the dead woman and that Sophia then left the apartment. But Dennis does not seem to be innocent: In his bulging police files, allegations of assault, rape and arson can be read. However, there was never a conviction.

No character stands out in this case. The characters fit perfectly into the story and result in a harmonious overall picture. That speaks for a great ensemble, which Convinced all along the line.
