I think the movie (and book) you're thinking of was called THE PLEDGE. That novel was written by Ferderick Durenmatt (might be spelling the name wrong), not Jean-Patrick Manchette.

It's also been filmed (in Europe) as IT HAPPENED IN BROAD DAYLIGHT, with a script co-written by Durenmatt, and as a European made-for-TV movie.
