A character created by Fyodor Dostoyevsky in his famed novel of the same title, Raskolnikov (Peter Lorre) is a Russian man who follows an unusual moral code. A combination of vigilantism and hubris fuels his decision to aid a hapless prostitute (Marian Marsh) by removing her antagonist, a local merchant. Raskolnikov is locked up for the murder, and while he does not deny committing the crime, he tries to persuade the police that he should not be charged.
