Harry who lived in the town, told me that he was unsure of how he got the wool. However he did get all the money from the vault of the bank. “For an instant, there was no one in the area, so I tried calling the bank to inform them that I was going to transfer some money to an acquaintance in New York City. But they wouldn’t let me. They told me that nobody could access the vaults without the key. Therefore, I had to steal their key.” RPG

Many of the townsfolk start to believe that the serial killer is part of the group.

Russell Brand plays the role of Al Sweets. Al is a small, weak, and aging man who hopes to become a successful like his hero Sherlock Holmes (Craigentin). Al is abducted by terrorists and is forced to serve as a double truck driver on a cross-country trip. Al desperately tries to convince authorities to free him. Al realizes that he’s in love with a different man despite all efforts.
Russell Brand turns in another excellent performance as the master sleuth. His co-star Edward Hershey, however, is perhaps better known for his work on television like “That 70s Show” and “Thatchers Files.” Hershey is a much more entertaining character than Russell Brand.
