Right. This is doing our heads in. We have transposed the code which we worked out for ourselves. We know about the typo. Then as a last resort we visiyed holmes and he tells us the re is a code in the code. He counts 1,2,3,4,5,1,2,3,4,5.

So we have looked at every 5th letter. Every 5th word. Every 5th letter of every 5th word. Every 5th capital letter. We have done this on the scrambled and decoded wording. We have tried laying the letters out in columns and all sorts. We are getting nowhere. Can anyone give any hints without giving it away? If I need anything stronger I will let you know.

We think we will have solved the case as we think we know what's going on with the code revealing the identity of the person who is instructing him and committed the murder so it feels like the last bit of the jigsaw.
