Needle of suspicion

Posted by Tom on September 06, 2007

Came across "needle of suspicion" earlier this evening.

"Dan Brown has managed to point the needle of suspicion from one character to another skillfully."

It sounds familiar but... not really. Obviously it has something to do with deflecting suspicion from one to another.

Any ideas about origin?
