Time Limit Investigator 2019

Time Limit Investigator 2019,時効警察はじめました
Copyright© tv asahi All rights reserved.
- “Ex” criminal whose crime has reached the statute of limitation vs. Kiriyama, who regards investigation as his hobby- The legendary comedy-mystery “Time Limit Investigator” returns for the first time in twelve years!

“You are the one who’s done that, aren’t you? The statute of limitations on serious crimes is abolished now, but your case had expired before that. Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone.”

Many unsolved crime cases have reached the statute of limitations, and many “ex” criminals managed to escape from accusations. In Japan, the statute of limitations for murder was abolished in 2010, but there are still piles of unsolved cases that had expired before that.

Time Limit Investigator 2019 is a drama about “a criminal who managed to escape” versus “an investigator who conducts investigations as his hobby. “ Now that there is no statute of limitations for murder anymore, his only ambition is to prove that his reasoning is correct. Surreal and pop, with laid-back characters, this is a mystery drama that makes one feel relaxed and at peace.
