"Partners in Crime" (1961) is a good Britnoir in the police procedural vein, with Bernard Lee as the head inspector. He's seeking to solve the murder of the chairman of the "Cool Kups" company, Victor Platt. We soon learn that Platt's partner, John Eyssen, is involved as is Platt's wife, Moira Redmond. Eyssen has a rock solid alibi, having hired trucker Gordon Boyd to do the dirty deed.
This is an efficient entry, passing swiftly. It's no mystery to us, as we are let in on the killer. These Edgar Wallace films look good in black and white. Lee does a modest amount of detecting, but the big break owes to luck. Boyd leaves something to chance that he shouldn't. The ending has a very realistic special effect.
