The team missed way too many things, they aren't that dumb. Spoiler
13 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I felt this episode was very weak in plotting.

Spoilers follow:

The murder weapon was recognizable to me as soon as I saw the little metal ball. I am no forensic expert, I just watch 60 Minutes, but they were all baffled.

The missing money was hidden in a book store by a man who was a book lover. No one, from the killer to the team thought to look at the books, especially the ones placed in a special cabinet? It would have been the first thing I would have checked, and I am not a government agent or a KGB spy.
