Island in the Sun

There's a-They have a-
have a secret together.

There's a-There's
a deep bond between them.

It's rather like a love affair...
because the detective is the only man
in the world who understands him.

And in his heart, the murderer wants
to be found out by the detective.

Now, this fellow
in the Carson case, you know...

what I'd like to do
is to go up to him...

take him by the arm
and tell him not to worry.

"I'll do my best for you,"
I want to say to him.

"I'm not out to punish you.
I'm not out to punish anyone.

"It's just that I've got to maintain law and order.
But I mean you no harm.

"We'll-We'll get it fixed
as manslaughter.

"That might mean
only five years...

"and the sentence could
be remitted for good behavior.

"It might be only three years.
"I know that sounds
a long time now, but...

"three years passes very quickly.
"Now, you look back three years.
Does it seem a long time?

"No, of course it doesn't.
"And, after all, three years
isn't such a big price to pay...

"for your peace of mind.
So, come now.
Confess. Tell me."

Well, that's what I'd like to say to the poor devil...

if he came to me.
Well, I'll be seeing you.
Oh, that book, Crime and Punishment,
I'll send it over to you.

When you get a chance,
you read it.
