He urges changes in work practices despite being unwelcome by the detectives. His attention is draw to a photo of stackable dolls that was found at the murder scene. Those eyes are just like the look of a detective. In fact, he was an outstanding detective but came to prioritise life with his children after his wife died from an illness. Having just transferred to the Criminal Affairs Division, Ogawa the rookie is unaccustomed to investigations and seeks Okawa’s assistance. Okawa refuses since he is no longer a detective.
