  • “Pink Panther — Theme” by Henry Mancini (00:36:00): The In for a Murder soundtrack song is used as Magda’s ringtone. It’s first heard when the protagonist receives a phone call from Tomasz (Przemyslaw Stippa) and then again at 00:49:00 during a salon visit. The music plays one more time at 01:28:00 as Magda hides at a suspect’s home.
  • “Kung Fu Fighting” by Carl Douglas (01:34:00): Czerwinski’s henchman battles dancers after Magda escapes. It’s a brief and somewhat bizarre sequence, one that ultimately sets up a climactic confrontation.
  • “Szósty zmysł” by Anna Smołowik (01:40:00): Performed by the film’s lead actress, the track scores the end credits after Magda celebrates her independence.
  • “Mary Jane” by Stiff Bones (01:43:00): The In for a Murder soundtrack song plays during the end credits after “Szósty zmysł.”


Netflix’s In for a Murder soundtrack also includes “Grube Tango” by Mikołaj Stroiński and “Nokturn Dla Chopina” by Krystyna Man Li Szczepańska.
