"Reason did not extend itself with the bulk of the body; on the contrary, we observed in our country, that the tallest persons were usually the least provided with it; that among other animals, bees and ants had the reputation of more industry, art, and sagacity, than many of the larger kinds. [...]

I cannot but conclude the bulk of your natives to be the most pernicious race of little odious vermin that nature ever suffered to crawl upon the surface of the earth."

(From: Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift)

    Ich wurde wohl durch all die vielen Versionen mit verschiedenen Titeln etwas verwirrt und habe mich der Poesie hingegeben. :)

    Hast aber schon recht: Entweder: "Eine Stadt sucht einen Mörder" oder "Mörder unter uns" für die Erstfassung von 1931.
