Intriguing Italian mix of comedy and giallo. We are closer to the Volonte thrillers than Dario Argento here.
Dorreli is a low rank journalist, with a desk next to the toilet at Tribuna Sera newspaper. His correspondence contains a serial killer's letters, which he exploits. Circulation jumps. It takes him a while to realise the identity of the killer.

This one is good enough to make the viewer wonder about all Zampa's other inaccessible films.
