Mrs. Zani?

She's in a session.

One moment. I'll check.




It's Mr. Zani. It's urgent.

Very well.

-Thank you.|-You're welcome.

Listen.|I don't really want to talk to you.

And right now it's not possible.

I told you, I can't right now.

Why don't you come|by my house tonight?

Ok then. Just don't start any fights.

Will you stop that?

You're so hateful.

I knew you would start it again.

I'm hateful you say?

You are a dirty slut.

That is all that you are.

Why did you send me this picture?

To piss me off?

No, it was not me.

I had nothing to do with it.

It wasn't me!

I'm not going to let you ruin|my life, work or my reputation.

What does this have to|do with your work?

What do you want from me?

The truth is you're jealous.

You probably had|those pictures taken.

I think this is a stupid trick.|I'll bet on it.

It's a stupid scam.

I want to know who he is.

Give it to me.

Filthy pig.

What are you going to do now?

Just leave me alone.

That's enough now.

Come in.



Who's there?

The bedroom is rectangular|twenty nine by sixteen.

A window on the eastern side,|three feet from the wall.

..with no traces of blood...

On the wall right by|the library, some marks.

On the left side, on a small|glass table some blood.

The bedroom is where|the body was violated.

Anyone you would suspect?

What? Oh, excuse me.|No, no suspects.

Have you two been|separated for long?

Four months.

How was your relationship?


Can I have one?


A cigarette.

After you finish that, check|the house inside and out.

Listen, from top to bottom.|Turn it upside down.

Take photos of everything. Got it?

Why did you come to see her?

I had my reasons.

Detective, we found this.

Look under the dresser.

Check under that one too.

Did you know you wife was|having affairs with other men?

Do you get jealous?

That is none of your business.

I see.

What do you do?

Sell insurance.

Did your wife have life insurance?

What are you trying to say?

Nothing, nothing.

For the moment, nothing.

When was the last|time you saw you wife?

About ten days ago.

Where were you yesterday?

At a friends place.

What is his name?

Gianfranco Carlini.|Marolini street number five.

Ok, we will check it out.

For now, stay available.


Oh, my god!

Who can I talk to?

The commissioner.

This is all my fault.

I can never forgive myself.

So you killed her?

Are you joking?

It's my fault because|she called me last night.

She was so upset.

Don't photograph me.|I don't want to be in the papers.

And I didn't do my hair.

Don't worry.|We're not going to take your picture.

Let's understand each other.

I don't want to be|involved in this investigation.

Unless it's really necessary.

Why was she upset?

Because she had an|argument with her husband.


Right here in the house.

I should have come over last night.

If I would have come|over I would have killed her.

You promised you would not be late.

Oh, well.


Six hundred.

I sold everything.

Isn't that what you wanted?


The furniture.

Now we can remodel.

We wanted to do that right?

Yes, that's right.

Did I get tricked?

If I did, I can give this back.

I'm going to.|I got tricked...

I've changed my mind.

I don't want to do it at all.

It's wondertul.

Out with the old, right?

Are you tired?

I'll get dinner ready.

Eggs tonight?

Nope, chicken.

Oh, chicken.

If it's not eggs, it's chicken.

So...|how did things go today?


Come on. Tell me.|What happened?

We found a nude girl dead.

Poor girl.

These are the|fingerprints of the victim.
