This book is written in Korean language. Based on an award-winning novel by Japanese author Kazuaki Takano, the thriller stars veteran actor Tsutomu Yamazaki ('Tampopo') as an aging prison guard who is hired to find a killer in order to prove the innocence of a condemned man on death row. He takes on a young ex-con (Takashi Sorimachi) as his assistant in search of the murderer. The movie not just delivers good doses of suspense and murder mystery, but also gives sincere portrayal as to life and death (and death penalty) issues. Kazuaki Takano studied Film Studies at Los Angeles City College and has worked for many years as a scriptwriter in Japan. Takano's debut novel, 13-Kaidan (13 STEPS), won the 47th Edogawa Rampo Award for best mystery of the year in 2001. GENOCIDE was nominated for the Naoki Prize and won the Yamada Futaro Award, selling 340,000 copies since its publication in April 2011. 사형당하는 놈들이란, 잡히면 사형이라는 것을 빤히 알면서 굳이 저지른 일행들이야. 이해가 되나. 이 뜻이? 그러니까 놈들은 누군가를 죽인 단계에서 스스로를 사형대로 몰아넣는 거야. 잡히고 나서 울고 불고 해봤자 이미 늦었어. 왜 그런 바보들이 끊임없이 나타나는 걸까? 그따위 놈들이 없어지면 제도가 있으나 없으나 사형은 시행되지 않잖아.사형제도를 유지시키는 것은 국민도 국가도 아닌 남을 마구 죽이고 다니는 범죄자 본인이야.
