Wondering why Lime has not welcomed him at the train station, Martins tries to find him at his home only to be informed that Lime just died in a tragic accident a couple of days earlier. But upon further inquiry into the circumstances of Lime's death, Martins is confronted with contradictory accounts that raise his suspicions. Alert to the possibility that Lime might have been murdered, he decides to stay in Vienna for a while longer to find out the truth.
