Popular Italian comic Alberto Sordi does an excellent job of creating a bumbling yet effective police inspector by the unlikely name of Dante Lombardozzi, in this entertaining comedy-murder mystery by director Luigi Comencini. Lombardozzi starts nosing around a murder that has been supposedly solved because he smells something fishy. His investigations bring him into contact with a hooker, Irma (Angela Portaluri) and the beginnings of an intuition that a scandal lies behind the murder mystery. Since the real facts about the crime were covered up as soon as possible, Lombardozzi may be looking at a serious roadblock in trying to nail the real culprit.
