Overview

A special entry in the popular "Galileo" drama series, starring Masaharu Fukuyama. This special drama goes back to show you how and when "Detective Galileo" got his start!

A locked-room murder case breaks out on an island. Looking for a lead on the case, Detective Kusanagi visits Teito University hoping to get an expert's opinion, when he spots a familiar name on a bulletin board. The name is Manabu Yukawa. In the past, Yukawa played badminton on the same team as Kusanagi, and now he had become an associate professor of physics. He was also known as a super-genius, just the kind of smarts Kusanagi was hoping for.

Yukawa needed some convincing (something about beautiful beachgoing babes on the island), and he ends up going to the island to help with the case. There they encounter many mysterious individuals, including the victim's family. But who could have accomplished a locked-room murder like this? And why? Perhaps most crucially, how?
