      Inspector Imanishi’s investigations certainly bear fruit, but shed no light (to me) on why this work should be titled Vessel of Sand, or what the picture on the book’s cover of a man covering his face with both hands is supposed to signify, and how it is relevant. Apart from these burning questions, all plot-related intrigue is sufficiently. By chance, I happened to be reading The Pillow Book while also reading Inspector Imanishi Investigates. The courtly etiquette and mannerisms of that year-old book still linger in Inspector Imanishi, with the polished rituals of letter writing, the messaging through haiku, and even the symbols of old artisan craftsmanship as exemplified /5(12).

    Inspector Imanishi leaves his beloved bonsai and his haiku and goes off to investigate—and runs up against a blank wall. Months pass in fruitless questioning, in following up leads, until the case is closed, unsolved. But Imanishi is dissatisfied, and . Castle of Sand (砂の器, Suna no utsuwa) is a Japanese police procedural directed by Yoshitarō Nomura, based on the novel Inspector Imanishi Investigates by Seicho Matsumoto. Plot. Yoshitaro Nomura's film of Seicho Matsumoto's immensely popular detective story tells the tale of two detectives, Imanishi (Tetsuro Tamba) and Yoshimura Directed by: Yoshitarō Nomura.

    “Inspector Imanishi Investigates” comes in pages of big easy-on-the-eye print. In its most popular Japanese format, it is a page double-decker in the tiny print of the cheap pocket.   Praise for Inspector Imanishi Investigates "A police procedural in the classic tradition of P.D. James's Commander Dalgliesh." —The New York Times "Patient, meticulous stories [that] offer an anatomy of a society as much as a picture of a crime." —The Economist "A master crime writer." —Jan van de Wetering, author of Outsider in /5(81).
