You finally call me for once but you have a cold! Just get back here already, Shin'ichi! I can't help it; I'm in the middle of a dangerous case.
Oh, a client.
It looks like a client is here, so I'll talk to you later! And get over your stupid cold! Hey, Ran! Ugh! She worries when I don't call, and yells at me when I do call! All she ever does is complain! I just don't get girls! No point in lying, missy.
I know he's here! So bring out Shin'ichi Kudo! Eh? Me? C'mon, already! Conan-kun! You have a cold, too?! Yeah Here, stay still.
Honestly, both you and Shin'ichi Is there a cold going around? Kudo has a cold? How do you know that if you dunno where he is? The phone.
Shin'ichi called just now with a nasally voice.
Kudo called here? He does call once in a while.
There a problem with that? So I guess the rumor you're Kudo's woman really is true Woman?! Eh?! - Who said that?! - Who said that?! Some friend of yours named Suzuki.
Says Kudo doesn't go to school, and that you're probably involved! Sonoko Darn her So, what did you and Kudo talk about? Nothing.
He told me about good mystery novels he read recently, the J-League, and asked how people at school are.
Did he ask about you? Eh? Me? Come to think of it, he always talks about himself and never about me.
W-What's going on? Hey, now! What're you doing?! Doesn't it seem strange? Eh? His occasional calls mean he has some interest in you.
Wouldn't someone like that care how the other person is doing? There's only one reason why he wouldn't ask that.
Kudo is watching you from somewhere! Eh?! Probably from nearby, too.
Shin'ichi is watching me? I'm sure he's spying from somewhere! Talk about creepy! Who is this guy?! By the way, who are you? Oh, right.
I forgot.
My name is Heiji Hattori.
Heiji Hattori Kansai High School Detective A high school detective, just like Kudo.
High school Detective?! Oh, he's just a detective.
Hey, kid.
I got just the thing for your cold! Come to think of it, I have heard of a skilled detective in Kansai Yep.
They call us "Hattori of the West" and "Kudo of the East".
Here ya go! Oh, thanks But there's been no word about Kudo lately.
He's never in the papers anymore, and rumors say he's missing But now the east has Kogoro Mouri— So what do you want with Shin'ichi?! Nothing.
I just wanna see for myself.
The east has me, Mouri! I wanna see if Shin'ichi Kudo's really worthy of being compared to me.
Huh? Conan-kun! What's wrong?! Ran-neechan Conan-kun! Hey! What did you give him! Chinese alcohol known as baigar.
I'll be staying here until I meet Kudo.
So this is a gift! How can you just do that?! Do you know how long I rang the bell?! I see this agency isn't equipped to greet clients, either! I'm in a hurry, so could we make this quick? Kimie Tsujimura (50) Wife of Diplomat Isao Tsujimura A background check on your son's girlfriend? That is a photo of her, and her history.
Yukiko Katsuragi-san, age 24.
Graduated Mitsuba Middle School and High School top of her class, currently attends Toto Medical University.
Well on her way to becoming a woman doctor.
Something wrong with all this? No.
It's just Too perfect, so you don't like her.
People are inquisitive, jealous creatures When they see something perfect, they naturally look for flaws.
Right, lady? Who is he?! Oh, just a friend of my daughter's In any case, we can talk in more detail at my home, with my husband.
Umm Right now? Couldn't you have both come here? As I told you, my husband is a diplomat.
If people found out he came here it'd turn into scandal.
Alright! I'm coming too! What?! It'd be less suspicious if we went as a family, right? Yes.
That would be best.
Eh?! M-Madam! Why don't you come, too? Why me? The more the merrier, y'know? Besides, who knows, maybe Kudo'll show up! Ran-neechan.
Ran-neechan! Let's go with them! But are you OK with your cold? Yeah! His medicine got rid of it! Told ya! Yeah, right! It made it even worse! I don't wanna go, but there's no telling what this guy might say! Welcome back, Madam.
Where is my husband? I do believe he's still in his study.
Fumio Koike (48) Butler of the Tsujimura Household Who are these folks? This is Mouri-san, an old friend.
Mother! Hello there! Oh! You're from the photo— W-Why are you here?! I asked her here.
Yukiko Katsuragi (24) Takayoshi Tsujimura's Girlfriend Attending Toto Medical University Takayoshi Tsujimura (27) Isao Tsujimura's Only Son Legal Trainee Dad won't see her, so I'm forcing him to.
He still won't come out of his study, though.
Umm, might these people be acquaintances of yours, Mother? That is none of your business! And you have no right to call me "Mother"! I-I'm sorry This way.
Sure acts big for a second wife Oh, Father.
I didn't know you were home.
Come, now! You said you wanted to hear about the fish I caught! Toshimitsu Tsujimura (78) Isao Tsujimura's Grandfather Former University Professor What do you think? A real whopper, wouldn't you say? Oh, right.
I'll be there soon.
Please wait in the Japanese-style room.
Yeah.
Dear! He's here! Dear! That's odd.
Is he not in there? Oh, you are in here! Honestly, now! Leaving the stereo on and taking a nap in here! An opera? Dear! Hey! Please wake up! Dear! Dear— Dear! Say something! Dear! Too late.
He's already dead! Ran! Call the police! Right! Dear! His body is still warm.
And his lips are starting to turn purple.
There's a small red dot by his hairline Could it be?! - Oww! - Oww! Stupid kid! Getting in the way! Conan-kun! Isn't it your job to watch him?! Kids shouldn't be seeing dead bodies, anyway! Yeah The deceased is Isao Tsujimura-san, age 54 and a diplomat.
And the detective who happened to be here when the body was found was I, Kogoro Mouri, Inspector Megure! So, is it another murder today, great detective? Well, as there are no signs of foul play, it's probably— Look closer at the body! He was probably poisoned.
Yeah.
He was pois— Someone killed this old man with poison.
There's a red dot by his hairline, and a needle's lying next to the body.
The old man died propped up, but he was probably set that way after someone poisoned him.
But it could've been suicide What? You don't get it? Check out the body.
The lips and digits are turning purple, and his eyes have excess blood.
This is proof he suffocated.
Yet, there are no signs at all of strangulation, drowning, or suffering.
The only possibility left is that he was paralyzed and then suffocated with powerful poison that can kill instantly! Add in the body's warmth and the lack of rigor mortis and that means he was killed half an hour before we entered the room! And by someone who stopped by this room Mouri-kun.
Who is this lad? Heiji Hattori.
A cheeky kid detective.
Heiji Hattori? Oh, you're the son of Heizo Hattori-san, Osaka's chief of police! Osaka's chief of police? It's strange, Hattori-kun somehow reminds me of Shin'ichi Are you all right, Conan-kun?! This is bad! My cold's gotten worse! All the windows are locked from the inside.
Entering from outside is impossible.
Which means one of you entered through the door with a spare key.
Madam.
I assume there are several spare keys to this study? No, only two.
I have one here.
My husband has the other.
Y-Your husband?! Yes.
He always kept it in his pants pocket.
Let's have a look.
Damn, his pants are tight.
I-Impossible! Eh? What is? Don't you get it?! The door was locked when we arrived! In other words, the killer locked the door and left! One of the keys is with his wife, who entered the room with us, and the other was in a double pocket of the victim's pants Making this an absolutely impossible crime a locked room murder! A locked room murder?! That can't be Just as I thought.
This guy's been in the papers, but he didn't solve those cases.
Shin'ichi Kudo did! This guy secretly contacts Kudo for help.
Probably will this time, too.
Alright! Let's see who solves this locked room murder first, Kudo Shin'ichi! I don't feel good Even my ears are ringing now Looks like I better solve this case so I can go home and get some rest What're you doing? The murder took place between 3:30 and 4:00.
Shouldn't you start by asking all the suspects for their alibis?! T-That's right! Hey! Don't let him beat you! Huh?! Do you want some outsider kid to upstage you?! I'm counting on you as always, great detective! Y-Yeah So you spoke with neighbors at the front door between 3:00 and 4:00? Yes.
Is it true Takayoshi-san and Yukiko-san arrived just before his wife? Yes.
That is correct.
So where were you two while he was greeting her at the door? My dad's study.
But the door was locked and he wouldn't respond, so we went back downstairs.
Then we saw Mother at the front door It was shortly after 2:00 when you arrived, yes? That's right.
I came all this way, but Isao was holed up in here, and Kimie-san had left With nothing else to do, I went to the next room and watched TV.
What time did you leave? An hour ago.
Which means that only those three could've gotten near the victim at the time of the murder.
Oh! What an impressive number of CDs! Yes.
He loved classical music.
Classical? Oh yeah, there was an opera playing when we found him Oh? Madam.
What is this photograph? Huh?! Oh no! This photo is 20 years old! What does it matter?! M-My eyesight is blurring! Inspector! What shall we do with the books on the desk? Oh.
Just leave 'em.
Books? Come to think of it, there were irrelevant books stacked by the body.
Almost as if pulled straight out of the bookshelf Inspector.
We found something odd about the victim's key.
What?! The key holder opens up to reveal cellophane tape! What's that thin bulge in the middle? L-Let me see, too Conan-kun? Now it's my chest! I gotta solve this case, quick! Got any realizations for me, great detective? Nope, nothing.
Wait! Could it be?! The unnaturally-stacked books in front of the body, and the opera playing at the scene of the crime! The tape on the key! The mysterious bulge in the middle of it! And the slit beneath this door! The opera! That's it! I figured out the locked room trick! And who did it Conan-kun! Conan-kun! What's wrong?! Hey! Call a doctor! Yes, sir! You're really burning up! Huh? Hattori-kun's gone He asked where the Japanese-style room was, then left.
Japanese-style room? It has to be here! If my theory's right it has to be here somewhere! Bingo! This is it! I win, Kudo! I'm sorry, but is there anywhere he can lie down? You can use the bed in my room.
It's at the end of the hallway.
Thank you! I appreciate it! Hattori-kun I figured it out.
The locked room trick, and who did it.
What?! Eh?! You solved it already? That's what you get for being slow! I'll show you the proof right now.
Fishing line? Inspector Megure.
Hate to ask, but could you play the role of the body? O-Okay D-Don't tell me he's At the time of the murder, all the windows were locked from the inside, and the only other entrance was locked as well.
That clearly makes this a locked room murder.
But even when this room seems locked, there's still one opening.
Opening? Yes.
The opening beneath the door! Hey, now.
You're not suggesting the key was thrown through that gap and into the victim's pocket, are you? It can be done! With tape and this needle-ended fishing line I found! Fishing line? Don't worry, Conan-kun! A doctor will be here soon! Damn! This isn't funny! Fainting from a cold at a time like this! Conan-kun! After pricking the victim's neck with the needle and killing him, the killer stole the victim's key.
The killer then took out the needle-ended fishing line, taped the non-needle end to the key holder, stuck the needle end into the victim's pocket, pulled the line through, and then sat him in the chair and put him in the pose we found him in.
The killer then took both ends outside the room, beneath the door, and then closed and locked the door.
All that remained was to put the key down and pull the needle end.
The key slipped under the door, climbed up the table, and entered the victim's pocket on its own.
I-It went in! Then, with one last tug the line pulled through the tape.
Then, by simply winding it up, the evidence disappeared and created the perfect "locked room murder"! I-Indeed Say something, Conan-kun! Conan-kun! I'm burning up My heart's about to burst That must be the doctor! Hang in there! I'll bring him right here! A-Am I gonna die Am I gonna die like this?! Well, Kudo? If you got any problems with my theory, show yourself! Better hurry before I solve it all!
