[ilds] Justine - pole star criminal

Before we crash out of Justine, there is something I am curious about 
in the last section, what Durrell initially called Consequential Data 
and later called Work Points.

There are the character-squeezes.  Some of these people are characters 
in Justine, and some are not.  There is one that particularly arouses 
my interest, and that is 'Ahmed Zananiri: pole-star criminal'.  Durrell 
knew a Zananiri in Alexandria (his first name was Gaston, and he served 
in some measure as the model for Balthazar); but what does 'pole-star 
criminal' bring to mind?
