Underaged Marisa (Patrizia Castaldi) is killed, and the police seem to give up investigations before they even started - but there's one man, Paolo Germi (Claudio Canninelli), who actually tried to pick up the girl shortly before she was murdered, who won't give up that easily, and eventually he joins forces with handbag thief Giannino (Adolfo Caruso) to soon he picks up a clue that leads him directly to a pimp who had his hands in a kidnapping affair. Germi has to shoot the pimp in self defense, but he takes the ransom money from the kidnapping - and hands it over to the police, because you know, Germi is actually a sort of secret policeman who was investigating the kidnapping.

He soon continues his investigations in the red light district and has to find out that Marisa was quite possibly a whore, but she had some information on whoever it was who was behind said kidnapping ... and

eventually, the trail leads to Marisa's own uncle, the banker Pesce (Massimo Girotti), who had abused her since age 13 and has his hands in all sorts of dirty dealings as on one hand they make him a lot of money, on the other this money seemingly puts him above the law. He even tries to buy off Germi - but Germi has his own set of morals ...

 

Very nice Italian crime thriller with giallo undercurrents that is not only competently crafted, swiftly paced and intelligently written (complete with political subtext and comedy bits), it also features some highly original setpieces like a carchase through the city in small and decidedly unglamorous used cars and a shootout on a roller coaster. Apart from that the film is full of unexpected plottwists and other surprises, colourful characters, suspense scenes and plenty of action, which make it into a very entertaining mid-70's genre piece.

Recommended!
