This obviously arouses the suspicions of the police but they are clueless to know where to begin. They receive an offer of help from a super sleuth with a hidden identity known only as L, he appears on a laptop carried by a polite old man. The laptop has a voice synthesiser and L communicates his information, which reveals a lot more than the police know. So this trust in L is built up and because of the lack of any other fruitful direction the police want to work together with L to try and identify the killer. L is a geeky young man with an compulsive need to constantly eat sweet food but trust in this character is cleverly built up.
While L is clever, Light is also equally clever in his attempts to outwit L. This cat and mouse relationship is a backbone of the film. The two films are very good, I especially liked the first one but you need to see both to wrap the story up.
