The Magistrate investigations

In the 30s, many books of fiction were written about doing investigations in a fantasied medieval china.
The magistrate is the official leading the investigation. He must obtain a confession from the culprit before any sentencing.
Belli made a nice RPG supplement on the topic, with very interesting
ideas, such as all players playing assistants to the magistrate and then
playing the ideas inside the magistrate’s head, during the trials and
public questioning.
This is genre quite curious, and make a good setup for a rpg.  I recommend the Mushishi OST to go with.
