Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Based on Poul Oerums' detective novel, in this movie the police are attempting to solve the murder of a news reporter. The inspector (Frits Helmuth) calmly attempts to sort through the complex web of lies told to him by the important people of the town, all of whom have run afoul of the reporter's investigations in some way. One of them is an embezzler, another one's wife is having an extramarital affair which would be damaging to his reputation if it were revealed. Indeed, most of them have a motive for seeing the reporter dead.
