The plot revolves around a series of murders committed by an unknown assailant intent on keeping the deaths of a small child and her father unsolved. As is the case with most gialli, there's a detective one step behind the murderer, a lush and creepy music score (this time by Morricone), a houseful of suspects, creative and illogical murders, and a downbeat and melancholy plot. What elevates this one above all the others made in that banner year for the genre (1971), though, is the detail given to the script and production. The characters are all fully formed and functional to the story, which itself is well thought-out and clever. The resolution is well-handled, and even if the killer's identity is impossible to guess beforehand, the means in which he (or she) is finally discovered will make you smile. Add to this one of the saddest musical-score main themes in movie history, featuring a woman's voice singing a haunting child's melody, and you have a giallo that fans of the genre should definitely not miss.

Сюжет вертится вокруг неуловимого убийцы, который устраняет каждого, кто хоть на дюйм приблизится к его тайне, а именно к давнишнему нераскрытому делу о похищении и последующем убийстве девочки и её отца. Невидимому душителю противостоит инспектор Лука Перетти (Джордж Хилтон). Он посещает людей, которые хоть как-то могут помочь в этом деле, а следующей же ночью убийца приходит к ничего не подозревающим жертвам, не давая им полностью раскрыть его тайну... Сможет ли инспектор остановить череду кровавых убийств или же сам падет жертвой неизвестного?

Leoni and Valerii reshaped the script, with particular attention given to the psychological examination
of the characters, such as little Stefania's mother, who sinks into madness after the loss of her girl, or the pedophile uncle, completely rewritten in the process. “It was a character that you could not tell what he was in the film for, so we told ourselves, 'Either we take it
out of the film or we develop it'. And we had the idea of the naked little girl that appears at the door of his studio during the commissioner's visit...”
(from book "Tonino Valerii: The Films")
