Can You Solve a Detective Mystery Using Just One Picture?

In order to exercise your brain, you don’t necessarily have to multiply ten-digit numbers in your head. Sometimes, all it takes is one picture with a hidden explanation behind it.
We at Think About Network recommend trying to solve this unusual brainteaser right now.
It was a hot summer day, and a police detective decided to catch a little sun by the banks of a river. Suddenly, he heard a woman crying.
“What’s happened?“ he asked the sobbing girl. ”Please calm down and tell me everything one step at a time.“
“That’s easy for you to say,” said the girl between sobs. ”You can’t even imagine how dear that bracelet was to me. I come here every day. Today I took off my bracelet while sunbathing, placed it on top of my book, and accidentally fell asleep. I woke up and my bracelet wasn’t there anymore.”
The inspector fell into deep thought. There were no footsteps left by other people in the sand around where the girl had been sitting, apart from her own. There were no other people in the vicinity. It followed that only one of the regular visitors to the beach could have taken the bracelet. These people had now formed a thick wall all around the inspector. He looked at them and within a moment understood who could have taken it.
The only person who could reach the bracelet without leaving any footsteps in the sand is the one with the fishing rod. He was the first person to fall under suspicion.
