Not a bad programmer

Not the worst of Edgard Wallace Mystery series episode, but not the best either. The usual scheme of an innocent man accused of a crime he did not commit. The real murderer, we know him at the beginning, when watching him setting up the whole thing, to get rid of a blackmailer, a man dangerous for his own safety - the assassin's, I mean. And the poor young man is the stool pigeon, of course.

But the police force - Scotland Yard - is here, really convinced that the supposed murderer could not be what he seemingly is...

The actor playing the evil killer is very good, I don't know him. His character is convincing.

A worth episode for Edgard Wallace stuff.
