Definitely a great Abe Hiroshi and Kagawa Teruyuki show! This is an interesting take on the Ukrainian version, too; a lot more compact, yet filled with a lot of emotion. This is a great detective, mystery, suspense drama if you are just starting out with Japanese dramas; not too many episodes, detailed enough to hold your attention, not too jam packed with unnecessary things, no cliffhangers left unsettled, great cast and script, plus much, much more to draw you in! There were a few instances that seemed a little less dramatic than they should have been, but as the episode and series in its entirety plays out, all the pieces seem to fall in to place rather quickly and neatly. The guest stars for each episode blended in really well with the original cast; there was one episode where I thought I knew the culprit but was COMPLETELY wrong!! The only issue I had was there were too few episodes, so I really cannot wait until the special comes out sometime this year! I hope some more people will give this drama a chance! Definitely a great story to watch!
