Cadaveri eccellenti / The Context / Illustrious Corpses (1976) DVD9
Rogas is the police inspector called in to investigate a series of mysterious murders of Supreme Court judges. After two further murders, both victims being prominent magistrates, the likely suspect emerges: a pharmacist who was wrongly convicted of trying to kill his wife. Rogas investigation then takes a bizarre turn and he finds himself being directed toward extreme political groups. As he slowly exposes layer after layer of political cover-ups during his lone investigation, he uncovers a plot that reaches high up into the Italian Communist Party and military.
It soon becomes clear that there is more to the case than is at first apparent and that the murders are merely the pretext for far-reaching political change across the country...
