Niels and Albert were excitedly describing the result of the International Puzzle Competition in Belgium. There were three contestants, Erwin, Werner, and Marie. Niels reported that Erwin won, while Werner came in second. Albert, on the other hand, reported that Marie won, while Erwin came in second.

In fact, neither Niels nor Albert had given a correct report of the results of the competition. Each of them had given one correct statement and one false statement. What was the actual placing of the three contestants?
