The 30 Greatest Literary Detectives of All Time - Page 2

From Shortlist: "Whodunit? It wasn't us, perhaps it was you. There's only one way to find out. Let's call for that most shadowy and exciting of literary creations – the crime-solving, riddle-repairing, mystery-mending sleuth.
From Sherlock Holmes to Kurt Wallander, by way of Sam Spade and Miss Marple, these characters have brightened up literature for decades. That they'll carry on doing so is an open and shut case that even foolhardy PI's such as ourselves could solve.
So, let's leave it to the big boys – and girls – eh? Without further ado, here are the 30 best literary sleuths known to man, woman or beast..."
First is an image of the literary sleuth - have you heard of him/her before?
Second is an image of a work in their canon - have you read that particular work?
Enjoy!!
