The Red Chapter 04

The Red Chapter is the second instalment of Thrill ! The Black Chapter and The Red Chapter, an NHK drama which was broadcast in February and March 2017. Detective Togawa (Keisuke Koide) from the Metropolitan Police Department teams up with young Hitomi Nakano (Nana Komatsu) to solve difficult murder cases.

Hitomi is not a detective but an accountant whose job is to check the receipts sent by police officers to the administration in order to make sure the taxpayers’ money is properly used. Smart and inquiring, she often ‘borrows’ the small black notebook on which Togawa writes down the details of his investigations. Hitomi knows all the tricks of the trade because her own father (who abandoned her when she was a teen) was a conman.

Funny situations and dialogues, making faces, wacky attitudes, Hitomi is definitely not your average ‘detective’ and the series is a must watch for those who want to see Nana Komatsu dealing with comedy, impersonating a truly offbeat character.

In this final episode of The Red Chapter the team has to deal with a group of terrorists. As usual Hitomi found all the answers but then she was captured by the baddies, will Togawa have the brains and the guts to come and rescue her?
