Interpol (Takuya Kimura) pretends to be a waiter and enters the hotel, and together with the hotel front desk (played by Masami Nagasawa), he traces the story of consecutive murders. Directed by Suzuki Masayuki.
Three murders occurred in Tokyo. The police deduced from the unexplainable series left in all crime scenes that this was a series of serial homicides with warning information, and launched an investigation. The elite detective Kosuke Nitta (played by Takuya Kimura) of the Metropolitan Police Department’s search section deciphered the number to indicate the location of the next crime.

In this process, the case developed rapidly. The police and the hotel were forced into a dilemma with nowhere to go.
