If you want to be a detective,

let's solve a missing person case.

Do you want it like this?

- Exactly like this.

Lend me some money.

I'll pay you back soon.


Grandma Wang, I found your son.

Ban Ban.

Ban Ban.

Why does it look different?

- It has been starving.

It will recover

in a couple of days.

It doesn't recognise me.

He does now. See?


Grandma Wang, I'm on a big case.

I have to go now.


Tang, this is fraud.

- What do you know?

I care about the mental health

of elderly people.

As long as the dog

makes her happy.

Here you are.

This is your so-called case?

Be patient. I'll take you to

solve a crime now.

This one.

What do you think?

- So...

So pretty?

- So ugly.

What do you know?

Qiang, give me some discount.

- Forty percent.

Lend me some more.

- What?

I'll pay you back soon.

I thought you were

going to take me...

It's for the case.

Come on, come on.

What are you doing?

Why are you being so grumpy?

Where are you going?

I hate liars.

- How did I lie to you?

You are a detective?

- Absolutely.

You bought the necklace

to solve a case?

Of course.

- It's not a birthday gift...

...for your landlady?

- How do you know that?

You were late to pick me up

because you were playing mahjong.

How did you know that?

Strong smell of cigarettes,

bloodshot eyes...

...and dirt in your fingernails,

especially your right hand.

Your left hand was stained,

but you are a right-handed smoker.

Your right trouser leg was dirtier

and they were both worn out.

All these signs lead to one thing,

playing mahjong.

I win!

You learn that from the novels?

- Am I right?

I usually have a lot of cases.

For example?

- Search for missing persons.

Cats and dogs.

- Tail a suspect.

Someone's mistress.
