    Enjoyed the story. Given the shop disappeared, in fact was never there, I would not be so sure that sword will be found in the police property room either when someone looks for it. I imagine there might be another in need of such a sword sooner or later. The only point that leaves me wondering a bit is the appearance of the card a few weeks before the incident and from where. I guess I will simply have to accept it without further clarification, after all this is a short story.
