Je m’appelle Maurice Manori. Je suis inspecteur de police à la Sûreté du Québec à l’Institut de Police Scientifique de Montréal. Bien que j’habite au Québec, mes origines sont italiennes. Mes collègues m’appellent tout simplement Manori. Je sais cependant que, derrière mon dos, certains me surnomment « l’agrapheur ». N’allez surtout pas imaginer que j’ai pour habitude de brandir une agrafeuse… j’agrafe les suspects à l’aide de la théorie des graphes. Je me trouve actuellement dans un avion, en direction de Genève. Je me rends en Suisse pour participer au congrès COPS de la Police Scientifique. J’ai pour mission de convaincre mes collègues que les graphes pourraient leur être utiles dans leurs enquêtes.
