Overview

Directed by Krzysztof Lang, this noir-style murder mystery is based on real-life events that occurred in Krakow in the 1950s.

Wladyslaw Mazurkiewicz (Andrzej Chyra)—a charming, elegant and handsome serial killer—has been accused of nearly 30 murders but has confessed to only six. Young detective Karski (Tomasz Schuchardt) is on the case. But as he begins to unravel the crimes, he finds himself mired in the intrigue, police corruption and political red tape of postwar Poland: the more clues he discovers, the more immune to punishment Mazurkiewicz becomes.
