This is the forty-fifth puzzle you'll encounter in Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy. To access this puzzle, you must investigate the leftmost painting. To complete the puzzle, you must determine who the bad guys are.

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Knowing that there are two bad guys, you can be sure that in a group of three or more who are all pointing at the same person, at least one of the group must be a good guy.

Hint Two
    Continuing on from hint one...
    There are five people all pointing at the centre guy. Even if both bad guys were among those five, it would still leave three people pointing at the centre. So the person in the centre must be a bad guy.

Hint Three
    Continuing on from hint two...
    There's one bad guy left to find. It's one of the two remaining people being pointing at by two others: either the top-centre, or the top-right person. Consider each in turn and determine which doesn't fit with the stipulated conditions of the puzzle.

Super Hint
    Continuing on from hint three...
    If the top-right person were the remaining bad guy, it would mean that anyone pointing at the top-centre person is a pointing at a good guy, which results in two more bad guys. Since that doesn't satisfy the conditions of the puzzle, it can't be right.

[edit] When Failed

Bad luck.

Go over the information that you have and try to narrow down who the bad guys could be.

[edit] When Completed

You did it!

One bad guy was dead centre and the other was just above him. It looks like they were trying to set up the good guy on the top row at the right.

[edit] Solution
