This film is based on a British novel of the 1930s written by the poet C. Day Lewis, under the pseudonym Nicholas Blake
and is one of several novels by him to feature as its hero the brilliant amateur sleuth Nigel Strangeways. This adaptation, in addition to moving the action to modern-day France, entirely leaves out this leading character (or any new French character equivalent to him). See more
