Summary

Criminal investigation series are very intriguing and fascinating. The constant discoveries of new evidence makes these types of series exciting.

This particular story began with a father searching for his missing daughter. This father had Asperger’s, and was a brilliant investigator. However, because of his situation, people around often misunderstood him as he was not able to read many of the social cues of others.

As he began to search aimlessly for his estranged daughter, bodies began to appear…

Themes

1) Asperger’s: “Asperger syndrome (AS), also known as Asperger’s, is a developmental disordercharacterised by significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication, along with restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests.As a milder autism spectrum disorder (ASD), it differs from other ASDs by relatively normal language and intelligence.Although not required for diagnosis, physical clumsiness and unusual use of language are common. Signs usually begin before two years of age and typically last for a person’s entire life.” — Wikipedia

The main protagonist, Fang Yi-jen, was known for his amazing dedication to his forensic investigation. So much so, that he neglected all social aspects of life, including his own family. He ran into constant conflict with his colleagues, who despised him, but depended on him to solve their cases.

2) Death: The entire series circled around different deaths in the city that the police deemed murders. Other stories arose as death by suicide was a part of some of the characters’ lives. Death was both feared by the living and embraced by those who were tired of living.

3)Bullying: People in power or privileges bullied many of the victims in this series. This was evident even in the protagonist‘s life. Originally, the police captain did not want Fang to be on the case. However, the chief said, “Let him join the task force! If he solves the case, great! If he screws up, then we can fire him!”

Yay Or Nay

Definitely a YAY!

I recommend that viewers try to watch the first 8 episodes in one viewing. That will help the viewer to keep track of all the details and twists.

For some viewers, there maybe some emotional triggers, as many of our modern day struggles and conflicts are mentioned.
