As criminals become more sophisticated and crimes more complex, the police must turn to speedier and more scientific means of weeding through clues and narrowing down suspects. That's where the forensics labs come into play. Investigator Mariko (Sawaguchi Yasuko) is a highly talented forensics scientist who must dodge stereotypes, as well as disparaging comments from veteran detectives including her ex-husband (Watanabe Ikkei), the Chief of Detectives.

Good forensic one case per episode drama. Season one is best (an 8 or an 9) - afterwards it goes downhill. Without giving away too much, the biggest problem is that Mariko�Ls team changes every season without any reason and they always have different skills. Also, her relationship with Junko and detective Koba changes somewhat in season 2, plus Junko is nowhere to be seen in season 3. All theses changes are never explained properly, it would have made more sense to make Mariko transfer. Stop after season 1 or if you must continue , stop after season two. Update in 2017 - we're now at season 16 or 17 and I saw a few episodes over the years - the formula is still the same. Stick to season 1.

I like the drama's quirkiness and suspense, and it's always interesting to see how evidence is used to nab the culprit in each case. However, I'm disappointed that the identity of the culprit is usually pretty obvious, which diminishes the mystery aspect of the series. In short, focus tends to be on the "how" and "why" and not as much on the "who."

An enticing show that draws you into loving not only the main character, Mariko, but also many of the other characters throughout the plot. I really really enjoyed this show and am very much looking forward to Kasouken no Onna 2 and 3 to complete the series of shows.

Very good drama! About a woman who used to work for the FBI, but came back home to Japan. Her detective methods are different then the ones used in Japan. Also she has to come to terms with an ex husband who happens to be her superior. Very good, very quirky drama!

Watched it all in two days cuz it was pretty short. I thought it wouldn't have as much comedy as it did but it was still a good show.

This series basically uses a CSI-style theme, though the series has been on longer. Mariko is a very spunky woman! Very cute too! :)

Mediocre. Not funny at all & the plots are weak. Can't believe they made 4 more of this. 4+
