Angelini reviewed this recently. So we watched it too. I remember
reading the book when it was on a list as one of the 100 best mysteries.
But I did not remember the ending. And I do think the way it was filmed
enhanced its strengths. The tonal shift when Alastair Sims shows up as
the Inspector is odd but enjoyable. It is set in a hospital during the war. It is close to a locked room murder in some respects. Well-acted, stylish. We enjoyed it. And every actor plays their part
