RE: RARA-AVIS: Seicho Matsumoto

Just found and started another Matsumoto available in English: _Inspector Imanashi Investigates_, published by SOHO Crime, originally in 1961. So far, so good. Like _Points and Lines_ it starts off in a Railway Station (actually on the platform). More specifically it starts off with a reference to a railway timetable, which is central to _Points and Lines_.

Comparing American and Japanese police procedurals would seem like a good way to think about cultural differences. My impression anyway.
