This postwar German crime drama was also released as Police Raid. Inspector Naumann (Paul Rildt) really has his hands full while investigating the burgeoning Black Market. After the usual wading through flunkies and lesser hoodlums, the Inspector finally reaches the "brains" of the racket, a gent named Goll (Harry Frank) who knows all the angles. There's also an innocuous romantic subplot involving Naumann's daughter Anna (Eli Burgmer) and his assistant Karl Lorenz (Friedhelm von Peterson). Razzia predates John Ford's Gideon's Day (1958) by giving equal attention to the lead detective's public and private life.
