comment Why 罪人=犯罪者のこと、not just 犯罪者?
Because with のこと, the dictionary is giving a synonym. For 真犯人, the dictionary is explaining the term using two conceptually different words. (I think this is just style, though. Omitting のこと for simple synonyms would be fine, too.)

X: Yのこと would be X means Y in English. こと has little content and its function consists in pointing to Y and saying "this is what I mean".

comment How to thank somebody for their hospitality?
It is a set phrase for much more than this situation. It means something like "I'm very much obliged/indebted" and sort of implies that someone went out of their way to do something for you. Its content is much like saying "thank you", but the nuance conveys some humility on your part. In any case, it's a good phrase to know, in particular for a hospitality situation, because someone hosted you and there is little you can do to pay them back.
