Directed by spaghetti western master Tonino Valerii, My Dear Killer (Mio caro assassino) is a handsomely produced and unrelenting mystery-thriller reveling in clever twists, kills, and a shimmering Ennio Morricone jazz score. Inspector Luca Peretti is assigned to the rural case of decapitation via excavator at a construction site. When this killing paves the way for similar vicious acts, Peretti discovers the victims were connected to another shocking crime: the horrific murder of a young girl, which has remained unsolved for years.
