Veteran actor Hiroshi Tachi, who often plays police detectives, makes his first ever appearance on TBS’s Monday night mystery drama. In “Keibu Tsuge Kyosuke — Chokoso Hoteru no Chikaku” (“Inspector Kyosuke Tsuge: High-rise Hotel’s Dead Angle”; 9 p.m.), Tachi plays the title character, an unconventional cop whose temper has gotten him suspended indefinitely.

However, his supervisor (Hiroki Matsukata) brings him back secretly to help with an old case. Three years ago, a murder happened in a locked room in a high-rise hotel and it remains unsolved. There was only one witness, a hotel employee, and Tsuge interviews the employee’s colleagues. However, while he’s doing this, another dead body is found in a bathtub in one of the guest rooms. As it happens, the hotel is hosting a stockholders’ meeting. When the previous murder occurred, there was also a stockholders’ meeting going on.
