Hiroshi Abe stars in Higashino adaptation
Hiroshi Abe (45) will star in a new drama series this spring, taking on the role of a police detective. Titled “Shinzanmono,” the drama is based on the latest novel in the “Kyoichiro Kaga” series by mystery author Keigo Higashino (52).
The “Shinzanmono” novel is the eighth installment of the “Kyoichiro Kaga” series. Released last September, it has already sold 380,000 copies. Many of Higashino’s other works have already been adapted to television in recent years, including “Ryusei no Kizuna” and “Galileo.”
