The Trygon Factor (German title Das Geheimnis der weissen Nonne ("The Secret of the White Nun")) is a 1966 British-German detective movie directed by Cyril Frankel and based on the 1917 Edgar Wallace novel "Kate Plus Ten". A police inspector who investigates a series of robberies is murdered when he finds a tie between the crimes and an order of nuns that is sheltered by Lady Emberday. Superintendent Cooper-Smith (Stewart Granger) takes the investigation in his hands.
The film is the 22st installment in the Rialto Film studio film series (1959-1972) and the only one really made in England by London subsidiary of Rialto Film. Eddi Arent took leave of the Edgar Wallace series with this film.
