Rollei B35

So I just got a Rollei B35 and having the darndest time trying to close the back after placing a roll of film in it. I was examing the camera before I put a roll in and it just wouldn't close so I thought maybe it needed a roll to be in the there to close...but it still won't close. Seems that the small knob on the bottom won't turn to lock the back in place.

Is there a flaw in the camera I got or am I just not doing something right. Or is there a quirk in this tiny camera that I'm not aware of? I tried a Google search but found nothing that would explain.. I thought I was competent enough to figure it out but now I'm just perplexed.....

Can anyone help?
