Incredible Mystery
15 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

After a body disappears from inside the prison, a series of crimes take place, all seemingly by the dead man. With Juve presumed dead, Fandor (Georges Melchior) must investigate alone. Will Fantomas finally be brought to justice?

Being a Fantomas story, we pretty much know that Fantomas is the man behind all the horrible crimes... but the real question is how is he doing it? How do you successfully frame a dead man? Surely I cannot give it away, but the twists and turns are excellent and the series really picks up here -- this is not only the centerpiece, but perhaps the climax of the entire run.

I am not sure if you should watch this without having seen the first two parts, but if you saw those, you absolutely must give part three a chance.
