If you have trouble entering the Church Museum read further!
Look in inventory at the photo of the die’s six faces. First note the 4 faces (only) which have red dots on them. There is one red dot on the number-6 face of the die and hence the 1st digit (from the left) of the code is 6. There are two red dots on the number-3 face of the die and hence the 2nd digit (from the left) of the code is 3. In a similar way, 3 red dots leads to the 3rd digit (from the left) of the code which is 4 – and finally , 4 red dots indicates the 4th and last digit (from the left) of the code which is therefore 5.
Hence the complete code is 6345,
- In the School Museum, enter the first door to the left, and go through the corridor. In the kitchenette, find the wastepaper basket, and look at it in close-up.

- Find a small bench in the center of the area. Pick up the magnetic card lying in front of it. Note that it has three holes.
- Use the hole punch on the magnetic card to punch a fourth hole in the card, and get a punched magnetic card.
- Go to the ‘ornamental Ark’ at the centre of the area. In close up, view the front of the Ark. Use the punched magnetic card on the slot there.
- In addition, a code must also be entered in order to open the Ark.
We know from the brochure close to the statues that the painting at the beginning of the area provides a clue to this code.
The painting consisted of four vertical stripes-: One with two lines, one with a letter V, one with nothing in it at all, and one with four dots. The two vertical lines represent the number 2; the letter V the number 5, the empty stripe represents nothing (zero); and the four dots the number 4.

- By pressing the appropriate buttons, open the box.
You may have trouble with this puzzle – if so please read on:
Actually what you see in graphics 11 and 12 is NOT the top of the box itself but the mirror image of the box – it is what is known as ‘lateral inversion’ whereby everything on the right appears on the left and vice versa (but there is NO inversion from top to bottom).
Look carefully at graphic # 11 and click 4 buttons in order as marked on the graphic 11 in order from 1 thro’ 4. However don’t click the buttons as seen in graphic #12 but their mirror images as described above.
If that is not clear, click the buttons as follows…
 Right side second button down from the top.
 Top, first button on the left.
 Bottom; second button from the left.
 Bottom; fifth button from the left.
Take the key from the box – it is now in inventory.
- Exit the house through the kitchen. The guest house, is immediately to the right of the house. Utilize the key from the box to open the guest house.

- Open the gate to the pyramid with the key from Sten Johansson’s car.
- The inner door can’t be opened yet.
The School Museum (2nd visit)
- Enter the second room to the left. Look at the board with numbers. Carol will take a photograph of it, which gives us the photo from the School Museum (Graphic #16) and which goes into inventory.
- Find the box on the high shelf on the left wall in Carin’s studio. The lid resembles the board with numbers in the School Museum (See Graphic #17) but with four numbers replaced by asterisks.
Carin’s studio (2nd visit)
In order to solve this puzzle you have to examine carefully and compare Graphic #’s 13, 16, and 17.
First pay attention to the abacus on Graphic #13.
- The abacus below the board on the drawing is a lead: The first row FROM THE TOP has 4 darker beads, the second has 6, the third has 2, and the fourth has 3.
- This is a clue to the fact that the buttons we have to press on the lid of the box are 4, 6, 2 and 3 – but it does NOT in itself give us the order of pressing these 4 buttons.
- This can be done simply by trial and error – but there are 24 combinations which may take quite a long time. But a much better way is available!
- If we now examine and compare the positions of the asterisks on Graphic #16 with the actual numbers they replace on Graphic #17.
- Remember the previous result from the abacus (i.e. in correct above determined order… 4, 6, 2, 3).
We see that the only number 4 which is replaced by an asterisk is on the top line and 6 places along from the left. Likewise the only number 6 which is replaced by an asterisk is on the second line down and two places along from the left. The only number 2 which is replaced by an asterisk is on the bottom line and two places along from the left. And finally, the only number 3 which is replaced by an asterisk is on the top line and on the very left side.
So you have to press on the buttons in the following order:
 Top line and 6 places along from the left.
 Second line down and two places along from the left.
 Bottom line and two places along from the left.
 Top line and on the very left side.
The Church Museum (2nd visit)

- Turn left, and look at the table in close-up. Pick up the note with grid. - Graphic #20
- Turn right again, and open the door to the shed. There are several tools in the shed. ‘Borrow’ the crow foot to the far left of the screen.
- Go all the way around the house, and find the terrace. There is a green code panel to the left of the door to the terrace. – Open it!!
Note that the pattern on the note with grid (Graphic #20) resembles the code lock (Graphic #21). The single dot represents the first number that should be pressed, a dot with a circle around it represents the second number, a dot with two circles around it represents the third number, and a dot with three circles around it represents to fourth number.
This means that the code is 1970.
- Try to open the door leading from the terrace to the house. It’s locked.
- Turn right and pick up the ladder.
- Turn 180 degrees and lift the piece of paper on the table.
- Look at the plank to the left side of the door leading to the house in close-up. Carol says ”Can this be the plank mentioned in the note?” .

- After backing out of the close up of the plank, there is a gear wheel icon on it.
- Use the ladder on the gear wheel on the plank. Climb the ladder by clicking the up-arrow on it. Carol sees the plank in close-up, this time from a higher perspective. Click the hand icon on it. Carol says ”I can’t use my bare hands.” The hand icon changes to a gear wheel icon.
- Now, use thecrowfoot on the plank while still standing on the ladder. Pick up thekey from terrace that is revealed.
- Use the key from terrace to open the door on the terrace which leads to the house.

Look at its lock in close-up (Graphic #23). It is unusual in that it can be rotated by using the arc-arrows at the left and right sides of the lock. It has 10 symbols, of which 3 are identical to the ones on the note from the diary in the rented house (Graphic #22).
View the symbols on Graphic #22 and remember what they look like - in order from left to right. Then rotate the ring of symbols on the lock until the first of the 3 symbols (on the note) is illuminated on the lock. Press the green section in the middle of the lock in order to "set" that symbol. Repeat the process for the remaining 2 symbols and the lock opens!
- There is another diary in the suitcase. Use the hairpin to open it.

Compare the photo of the psalm board from the Church Museum (Graphic #24) with the miniature of the psalm board that Erik handed to Carol (Graphic#26). Note that the uppermost full star replaces the number 3 and the lower star with a hole replaces the number 2.
If we now examine the note from the train wagon (Graphic #19) we AGAIN see that the uppermost star, the 'full' star, is equivalent to a green star, and the lower star with a hole is equivalent to a blue star.
Thus the uppermost full black star points both to the number 3 and to the green star, whilst the lower black star with a hole points both to the number 2 and to the blue star.
Hence it is logically correct to assume that the number 3 is associated with a green star in the pyramid whereas the number 2 is associated with a blue star in the pyramid.
Therefore, a reasonable assumption is that we should first press the green star on the pyramid's psalm board three times and afterwards the blue star twice - the red star plays no active function in this puzzle.
A brick moves, and the hidden painting is revealed.
Grab the painting - Eureka!
