On the outskirts of Stockholm, Consul Abraham Egerman, Police Chief Starbeck, and Dr. Vergerus, the Royal Medical Adviser meet and detain them. These men believe the magician to be a charlatan, and are suspicious of his supposedly astonishing magic show, and demand to inspect it for themselves before it is shown to the general public.
