The Girl in the Fog

Crime


 

In Italy, a young woman disappears without a trace from her small village and a renowned police detective comes to investigate.

When a police inspector, a teacher and a psychiatrist are the main characters of a story, it sounds like a setup for a joke set in a bar. "The Girl in the Fog" is, in fact, a carefully plotted and imaginatively constructed mystery, and given its improbability, also a bit of a setup for viewers. While it takes a little too long to come to its conclusion, the end is satisfyingly implausible, in keeping with the traditions of detective stories. Cluedo Italiano.
