Where is the bomb, if any?
29 March 2014 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

A radiative material was stolen for a possible application for a dirty bomb. Where is the most probable site of bomb going off, if any? There are many variables to be taken into account, and that's one of the most exciting portion. However, I found the culprit's real motivation behind that a bit weak.

Aside from that, my favorite part is the application of prisoner's dilemma under insufficient information among them. The dilemma usually implies that the prisoners are trapped in an unfavorable Nash equilibrium of both confessing and being punished. What if they are not confessing at all? What would be the best strategy for the investigators?
