What Anton doesn’t know is that the couple in the car are Maxim and his wife. Humans are not able at least in the first part of the cycle to become Others.
Dwy order to get to the bottom of the case, the Inquisition temporarily resurrects Alisa, who implicates Zabulon in her demise, stating that Igor was not responsible for her death. The characters were still great. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Night Watch hinted that animals do not always follow the same rules as humans or Others when it comes to the Twilight.
He finally leaves, and when he gets back to his apartment, he discovers Zabulon calmly reading a newspaper and waiting for him. When an Other dies awtch natural causes, is killed, or dematerialised executed their “soul” or “essence” is passed into the Twilight where it remains for all eternity.
Boris Ignatievich wstch that Anton has been set up by the Day Watch, and uses his powers to swap Anton and Olga’s bodies so that anyone tracking him will be misled about his true whereabouts, and ensure any future murders will take place when he has a firm alibi.
