Ah, interrogation. Getting answers is not the same as getting information, and not all that information will be good.

But it's Hell. Information might not be the goal.

True. Infernal interrogators have some advantages, though. First, they don't have to worry about what is usually the main botch point: accidentally letting the victim die. They're already dead. Second, devils may have some sense of truth and lie, as part of perceiving souls. Given their own status is probably isn't very clear ... but the more in tune with Truth they get, the clearer it would get ... yeah, no wonder the poor archdemon is going nuts over this.

I would suspect the point is to torment people with their own hidden, unexamined truths. That can cause truly stupendous amounts of pain. You'd have to dig around a lot to find it, which is an effective warmup.
