Arson job

Story of a rather wealthy man suspected to have burned his own house in order to get the insurance money. But we know very soon that he is not the guilty one. The real arsonist is someone else. In this episode we watch very closely, with very many details, how an arsonist works to do his evil job. Interesting. And his character is also worth watching. See for instance the scene where he goes to the restaurant around the corner, just after he pulled his nasty burden, and starts eating with much liveliness. And that doesn't prevent him to save the night watchman of the factory to which he did his arson action. But the scheme doesn't summarize only to this man. Some sub characters will bring some spice in this entertaining story which I recommend.
