The Departed

OK, so I just watched The Departed for the first time - rented via Amazon Unbox on my TiVo - and I thought it was a good movie. The last bit was a bit... harsh shall we say. But it is Scorsese picture, so I wasn't expecting unicorns and rainbows. But it left me with one question:

At the end, when Dignam (Mark Wahlberg) shoots Colin (Matt Damon) - was it because he was yet another mole for Costello (Jack Nicholson), or because he was actually a 'good' cop and he was meting out justice for Billy (Leonardo DiCaprio)?

I tend to think it is the latter, and that Madolyn (Vera Farmiga) tipped Dignam off, and that was probably what was in the envelop Billy left with her.

Hmm, I think I need to track down Infernal Affairs - the Hong Kong movie this was based on.
