This review may contain spoilers

51 eps for 1 case, flashback, confusing

only recommended for those who want to watch detective films without paying attention to details ,,, watch and feel it for yourself

At first I thought this drama was a multiple case drama, but it only discussed one case in 51 episodes and even then the story was twisted and deliberately complicated

I was so dizzy, I sorted all the years, they compiled a flashback but it was so messy, that the crew themselves were confused

I dropped it during episode 15, but I decided to continue, but the more backward the explanation was getting shorter, and not clear it was, everything just happened

most dates and times sometimes different and wrong with the previous episodes

This drama is more like reading a script than a act?why i say like that? Because there are three cases but he is very pushy to connect together and his motive is very weak, unable to convince people

*** doesnt mean that I say the story is not connected at all, but the motive that connects each case or problem is very weak and does not persuade, like if they say yes so yes,,,,, like...

- ep 43,, the case inspector choi investigating ,,,, use a drug seller to connecting xujiafu and jinshen is not make a sense! And connecting the corpse at drug party with xujiafu?then connecting xu jia fu with cui tianxing the reasons do not persuade
,, he can connect the drug seller and smuggling immediately

-and for what the killer risked his life just to kill gaofeng? And for why he have a house at shanghai even he sleep and the van?

-‎Xujiatong is a smart character but always do a stupid thing,, openly asked the police about the case,,, just from news she can know about gaofeng is impossible! ,call liuqingye without fear being suspected by her? ,and she can sure that gaofeng can detect about "nanguo?"
So the point is,, only they know and they explain and telling to the audience rather than the audience watching what they act for ,,, whay they doing didnt make a sense just happen like that

ep 44 want to go england even though she is being banned from leaving the country,,

- They tortured themselves with 44 episodes for 1 story but suddenly able to catch and summon Zhao Yue E without any signs before,,, and shuddenly inspector choi found a restaurant owner who know about kong yang and xujiafu,, even police didnt know

-The ep48 of Gaoshihai's diary does not seem have anything to do with the death of his father Zhou Wei ,, they relate everything only from their words ,,, disorganized and messy flashback

*** The time was set wrong, many times, they made it look like the time they mentioned was detailed, but the details were wrong and confusing,,They make a twisting plot,, flashback plot but they cant make it nice structure ,,,
- ‎ previously said autopsy 10 nov, then 11 nov can still be tolerated ,,,
- ‎when gaojianshe went to shanghai the time was different from chen's description jie and the and the time difference is vast (ep17) ,,,
- ‎ gaofeng's cellphone tapping said it happened when 21des2016 17:37, but the real is 21 dec 2016 11: 50:21 (ep18 date from the killer cctv, when gaofeng take a bath) ,,
- ‎9oct 1995 DNA result come out, but the autopsy is 11 nov 1995, result out BEFORE autopsy??? ,,,,,
- ‎EP 19 When xu jun rescue wu xiaoling obviously 1986! But when ep 32 is 1988! And the bad guy is xuda ,,, Time travel ?! and when ep 10 liyan said 1987 xuda rape luohongxing so xujun rescue wuxiaoling cant when 1986! Because 1987 xuda still at long an!!
- ‎Ep 17 gaofeng said his grandpa diary is write until 2008 but when ep 45 he said his grandpa diary is write untill 2011! Different again
- ‎Ep31 zhaoyue e said his grandpa go to london 23rd and xujiatong go to london 24th efternoon,, but xujiatong ask someone for buying 23rd ticket AND! EPS 40! Inspector choi tracking cuitianxing, he go to london at 10th! What happen?!out of sync!
