A whodunit author, Peter Sander (Poul Reichardt), runs out of gas on a stormy night and is soon involved in his own real-life murder mystery. With the aid of a precocious young boy (Jan Priiskorn-Schmidt), he manages to discover who killed the elderly hermit and left him in an abandoned farm house. Director Erik Balling -- better known for his many satirical comedies -- publicly decried the fact that the public rejected one of the few crime dramas in an age over-burdened with bucolic farces.
