needle in a haystack

< Previous | Next >


English - US
Is there an Italian phrase equivalent to the English idiom "looking for a needle in a haystack"--in other words, looking for something that is very difficult to find? I'm writing a mystery story about a police investigation in Rome, and the police don't know--yet--who they are looking for or where to look. Thank you for any advice you can give.
