The detective is stumped until he finds that all of the doctors being killed assisted a Dr. Vesalius on an unsuccessful operation involving the wife of Dr. Phibes, but he couldn’t be the culprit, could he? He was killed in a car crash upon learning of his wife’s death.

Captain Tom Rowland and Commissioner X are sent to smash the Red Tigers Gang,which is responsible for the smuggling of drugs from Afghanistan to US. Both come to Pakistan and do a joint operation with the help of Pakistani Agencies. SP.Ali and Jacky Clay joins the Commissioner X’s team in Pakistan.

“Kommissar X” is a private detective named Joe Louis Walker (from a series of German crime fiction books) who was a counterpart of the German crime fiction FBI Special Agent Jerry Cotton. Between 1965 and 1971 seven Kommissar X films were made with Tony Kendall as the laid back swinging New York City private eye Joe Walker balanced against the serious muscular New York City Police Captain Tom Rowland played by Brad Harris.

With the international success of the films of Ian Fleming’s James Bond and the German Jerry Cotton (played by George Nader) series, seven Kommissar X films were made. These films were not only released internationally but became a staple of American television movies in the mid-1960s when American stations sought colour films to show.
