Is Karl Haas a hero or a traitor and thief? When he ends up in the morgue, it starts an explosive chain of events with Henry and Jo racing to track - not just a murderer - but to solve a decades old notorious art crime. Karl's son, Erik, who is an art dealer, inherited from his father priceless works of art stolen by the Nazi's during World War II. Meanwhile, Adam pays an unsuspecting Abe a furtive visit, and Henry's paternal instincts force a face-off with his nemesis. Flashbacks take Henry to 1814 where he is shocked to learn that his own father's shipping company was involved in illegal and immoral practices. Finally, Abe receives a priceless gift.

Did You Know?


Abe's WWII concentration camp tattoo number from Auschwitz is: 432289 and the location of the triangle indicates 1945. See more »


The slave trade was abolished in the UK in 1807 so that what Henry's father was doing would not just have been repugnant but illegal. Slavery itself was sadly not abolished until 1833 with compensation paid by the British government to slave owners. See more »


Detective Hanson: So, maybe I am missing something. If this Max Brenner guy's been dead since the 90's, how did he break into the apartment and kill Karl Haas?
Henry Morgan: Well, is quite simple actually
Lucas Wahl: Max Brenner is a zombie Nazi hunter, huh?
[everyone stares at Lucas]
Lucas Wahl: What? We were all thinking it

I loved this episode
1 June 2015 | by sherlockspal263See all my reviews

I do no agree with the previous reviewer.

I found the flashbacks interesting, the crime of the week was gripping enough and provided the perfect vehicle for the relational aspects of the episode

This story was emotionally affecting and ultimately uplifting , the relationships between Henry and Abe, alway given such special attention in the show were played with pitch perfection and revelations about Adam actually made him a much more rounded and even dare I say, more human.

Without spoiling this , Judd Hirsch was truly wonderful in this and supporting cast also created a good foil for Ioan Gruffudd and Burn Gorman as nemesis stood toe to toe for the first time !

Cannot recommend it more highly!
