This novel is a perfect example of why I love Japanese mystery writers: it starts as a detective novel–a murdered pawn shop owner and a suicide are two of detective Sasagaki’s cases–but from there it segues into a crime novel that follows the characters related in some way to those cases for twenty years and then it folds itself back into.

And apparently, Japan is one of the safest countries in the world. How come they’re so much safer there than here. I think I heard somewhere that inthere was less than 15 gun deaths in Japan. There were accomplices, and the Shinjuku ward office was suspected of giving approval for the murders.

I hear this quoted from so many people, Japanese and foreigners alike. And, in a certain sense it’s true. There are far less cases of murder and theft. I’ve seen change sitting on a vending machine in a neat little pile, because someone. While even one murder is one too many — much less more than — those figures reveal an improvement in one important area.

While the relatively low crime rate is a source of pride for Japan.

In this book, David T. David T. Johnson's The Japanese Way of Justice: Prosecuting Crime in Japan is a masterful comparative study of Japanese and US prosecutors and their institutional cultures.

Our Thriller of the Month for October is the Japanese crime fiction sensation, Six Four by Hideo Yokoyama. An engrossing police procedural written in crisp, atmospheric prose, Six Four gives a fascinating glimpse into both Japan itself and its own brand of crime fiction.

Yokoyama is a hugely popular author in Japan, selling millions of books in mere days, and yet Six Four is the first of his.
