The instructions for this crossword told us that “Radler tried to construct a puzzle with all 26 letters around its perimeter. Unfortunately he didn’t quite succeed. However, after solving the puzzle you may notice that if he had replaced one of the answers with an anagram of itself, he would have achieved his aim. What is the word he ought to have used?” The denouement is at the end of the review.
