A journalist has been murdered and the department really wants to find the killer quickly and brush this case under the rug. Commissioner Luca is sure that the guy they arrested is a scapegoat. In his search for the truth, he ends up crossing the mob, politicians, and the cops. Unlike most poliziotteschi, the main actor dubs his own dialogue complete with his nasally Italian accent. His voice doesn’t match the intensity of the acting. In any event, this was quite good albeit very confusing. Characters from the first three minutes of the movie appear later on and you don’t remember that they were part of the original killing. The climax is a great cliffside car chase and a nihilistic ending. I liked it despite not being able to follow the plot.
