Character Analysis

Zametov is actually the first policeman to whom Raskolnikov confesses. Of course, Raskolnikov says he's just kidding, but this bizarre confession definitely puts Porfiry on Raskolnikov's trail. Zametov also presents a less favorable view of the justice system than Porfiry. Zossimov claims that Zametov is corrupt and takes bribes, and Raskolnikov sees him drinking champagne in the Crystal Palace before their little chat. Raskolnikov associates the champagne drinking with bribes and corruption.
