Notes The plot is loosely based on the story by Giorgio Scerbanenco "Milano Calibro 9" inserted in the anthology with the same title released in 1969.

The outdoor scene was filmed in Milan, the studio scene at Dear Studio in Rome.

The film is the second chapter of the "trilogy of the milieu".

In some interviews Fernando Di Leo has always stated that the movie is a "noir" and certainly not a "poliziottesco".

Quentin Tarantino called "La Mala Ordine" as an "absolute masterpiece of the detective genre".
