Back in England, Lo reflects on how she finally reached safety. Judah had immediately called Scotland Yard upon hearing Lo’s story, and Lo had relented to let the Horsts call the Norwegian police. Soon she was driven to a police station, where a British embassy official was waiting for her. She learned that two bodies had been recovered the day before—a man, dead from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound, and a slim woman with shorn hair, who’d drowned.
From what the authorities are able to tell her, it sounds as if Bullmer committed suicide and that Carrie, too, had been killed—that Lo hadn’t been fast enough to warn the police on her behalf.
