Unclassified (all ages) Scroll to content

In this adaptation of Keigo Higashino’s best-selling novel, Detective Kosuke Nitta (Takuya Kimura; Blade of the Immortal) goes undercover in a high-end Tokyo hotel after a numbered code found at three seemingly unrelated murders leads him to believe the next murder will take place there. When he is assigned the front desk, hotel employee Naomi Yamagishi (Masami Nagasawa; Your Name) is not happy. Kosuke’s scruffy appearance and single-minded focus on his detective work are not exactly front desk material. She needs to clean up his act, and fast, because every guest and staff member is a potential suspect in the case. The two will need to set aside their differences if they want to come out unscathed, but will they learn to work together before the killer strikes again?
