A dangerous murderer with a broken ankle is wanted by police after breaking parole in Victoria.

John Douglas Hartwick, 65, was released from prison on November 1 after serving time for murder and broke his parole conditions by failing a drug test.

Police say the Norlane man has a history of violent offending and has prior convictions for armed robbery, assault, firearms and drug offences.

Despite his broken ankle and moon boot, Detective Superindent Peter De Santo warned members of the public that the "career criminal" is dangerous and should not be approached.
