PLOT : After climbing the wall of the museum, Diabolik enters the building and manages to steal a precious crown. The King of Terror, with his accomplice and lover Eva Kant, also takes possession of the rest of the Armen collection during a fashion show. In this second heist, however, he fell into a trap set by Ginko and the dancers robbed were none other than undercover police officers. The inspector and his men manage to find his hideout inside a mountain. Diabolik manages to escape but in his flight, he abandons Eva who, in order to evade the police, dives into the river. Ginko is convinced that the criminal will turn up sooner or later, so he has his laboratory guarded day and night, where all the precious stolen goods are kept. Getting in touch with him instead will be Eva Kant who wants revenge after being betrayed and offers him a deal to capture Diabolik. In the meantime, the Inspector must also deal with the arrival in town of Altea, Duchess of Vallenberg, with whom he has a love affair that he wants to keep secret.
