A serial killer kidnapped people and made them take one of two pills, one was harmless, and the other was poisonous. Whichever pill a victim took, the serial killer took the other one. Each time, the victims died and the serial killer survived.
Question. How did the killer always get the harmless pill?
Both pills were harmless. The poison was in the glass of water the victims drank.
A man and a woman went to a restaurant for dinner. While they were waiting for the main dish, she ordered 5 drinks with ice because it was very hot. The woman drank 4 of them all at once, while the man only drank one. After a while the man became ill and died. The doctors said that all the drinks were poisoned.
Why was the woman still alive when the man died? Read again carefully.
The poison was in the ice. Since the woman had her drinks quickly, the ice didn’t have time to melt. The man drank slowly and the poison melted into his drink.
Imagine a scene. A man was found dead, he has a pistol in his hand and a cassette recorder next to him. The detective pressed the “Play” button and listened the message, it said “I am tired of this life and decided to stop my pain and suffering” and then a shot follows. Somehow the detective doesn’t believe that it was a suicide.
Why does the detective think that it was a murder?
If the man killed himself, how could he rewind the cassette to the beginning?
An detective was on duty during the Christmas holidays and on the morning of December 25th he went on a call. He rang the doorbell, and a minute later a sleepy house owner opened it. The detective said “Your neighbor says that yesterday, on Christmas Eve, he came to your place for a party and while he was here, you broke into his house and stole some valuable items.”
The owner replied: “That’s not true. Our family celebrated Christmas Eve at our friends place. We barely had time to decorate our Christmas tree.”
The detective said: “No worries. It’s quite obvious for me that your neighbor is a liar.”
Question. How did the detective know?
The Christmas tree lights are unplugged and actually missing one bulb, they wouldn’t work without it. It was clear for the detective that the owner was telling the truth. He had decorated the tree in such a hurry that he didn’t even check to see whether the lights were working or not.

A serial killer
A serial killer invited a prospective victim to her home. They had dinner together after which, she offered her victim an apple. The victim said that she was already full.

Felice and Nicolas are the murderers.

The cook said “I put the bill under a book to keep it safe,” the man checked and it was not there.
The maid said “I moved the bill inside the book between page 10 and 11 to keep it safe,” the man checked the book and there was nothing between pages 10 and 11.
The electrician said “I saw the bill sticking out of the book and I moved it between pages 11 and 12 to keep it safe.”
The man immediately knew who stole the money.
Who is the thief?
The elecrician stole the money.
If the man checked for the money between pages 10 and 11 of the book, then pages 11 and 12 will be opposite sides of a single sheet and the electician simply was not able to do what he said.
Frost on windows
Ben was found dead in his study by his friend John. John called the police and told them what happened. He said “I was walking by Ben’s house and saw light on in his room.

I kicked the front door in to check things out and found that my friend was dead. I called police immediately.”
The officer knew immediately that John was lying.
How did the detective know?
Frost forms on the inside of the window, not the outside. So John could not have wiped it off to find his friend.
