Murphy's character is a model of dedication to his duty who is determined to get the job done come what may. He is fully aware that Sullivan, although his prisoner, always has the upper hand and is only the prisoner because he allows it. A mutual respect and friendship of sorts develops between the two. Sullivan's obliging and engaging manner baffles Murphy who learns to trust him along the way, at one stage even accepting his prisoner's word that he won't try to escape. The end is inevitable and we see that although justice has to be done, it can leave a bitter aftertaste in ones mouth.
