Question: What were the last lines of the movie?
Chosen answer: Marshall's line was, "Why do you fight it so hard, Earl?" Earl Brook's was, "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time and enjoying one moment at a time, accepting hardships as the pathway to peace. Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is and not as I would have it, trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His will, that I may be reasonably happy in this life, and supremely happy with Him forever in the next. Amen."
Question: Does the ending mean that the policewoman gives up on her hunch?
Chosen answer: No, she didn't give up. When "Smith" called Detective Atwood, she realised that it was a different voice (Brooks) and that the police may have fingered the wrong person. She was not the type who would let this go.
Question: What type of personality disorder does Mr. Brook have, is compulsive killing part of it, and is it really genetic?
Chosen answer: It sounds like Dissociative Identity Disorder. And I think compulsive killing is something he chooses to do, and not connected to his DID; and from skimming the article, it doesn't appear to be genetic.

Mr. Brooks: Before I was the Thumb Print Killer, I killed a lot of people, in a lot of different ways.
The movie was meant to be set in Oregon, but it was actually filmed in Shreveport, Louisiana. In the scene that has Tracy leaving the apartment complex where Bafford (Mr. Smith) is, she is worried that she is being chased by a jogger who may possibly be Mekes. In the background, during the shot where the jogger first appears, a brown sign can be seen. These specific signs are unique to Louisiana and describe the history of certain locations, this one obviously being Shreveport.
At about 1.48, while Mr. Brooks is reading a paper in a diner, the newspaper - USA Today - has only the headlines and first few lines written in English. The rest is in Latin. You can see it on the Bluray disc.
