YMMV: Judge Dee
  • Tear Jerker: During The Chinese Maze Murders the military official whom Chiao Tai has sworn to take revenge on is murdered; after the case is wrapped up Chiao Tai comes in to the Judge's office and tells him the whole story of his desertion (precipitated by the actions of the aforementioned official). By the end of the story, Chiao Tai, who began in a flat and toneless voice "as if he were reading from a military report," is sobbing. So, perhaps, are you.
    • The scene where the judge's assistants learn of the sergeant's murder.
    • The ending of Murder in Canton, as Chiao Tai dies, struck by the judge's sword as he predicted.
