The Casebook of Female High-School Detective Sonoko Suzuki (女子高生探偵 鈴木園子の事件簿 Joshi Kōsei Tantei Suzuki Sonoko no Jikenbo?) is the 8th OVA of Detective Conan. It was available via application service from March 12, 2008 until May 21, 2008 (Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine issue 15/2008 until issue 25/2008).





Sonoko volunteers herself to write and direct a stage play by Teitan High School students for charity at a church. She came up with a murder case featuring people like Kogoro, Megure, and herself as the female high school detective who will solve the case. However, she can't come up with the meaning of the dying message the victim leaves, and how the rest of the story plays out.

At first, Sonoko asked Ran to talk to Kogoro for suggestion on how the meaning of the dying message should be. He ended up saying the same thing as his deduction in Sonoko's script. Ran then decided to call Shinichi hoping he could give a good suggestion, but Shinichi said he'll call her later. So, in the meantime, the Detective Boys tried to help Sonoko come up with the story.

The case below is the story Sonoko came up with for the stage play.

    • The representation of the drama play was presented in Beika Church.
    • The title of the case comes from a book of Arthur Conan Doyle titled The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes.
    • The usage of the song "Amazing Grace" can be seen as referencing the movie from the same year, Full Score of Fear.
