#AtoZChallenge 2016-Detectives

Welcome to Day 4 of the A to Z Blog Challenge and a topic related to the letter…

Today’s #AtoZBlogChallenge Topic: Detectives

Detectives investigate an event or series of events, usually related to criminal activity, in order to determine what happened and who may be involved or responsible for the activity. These characters interview witnesses and suspects, gather evidence, report on what they gathered or determined, and for those working for police organizations, arrest the perpetrator or perpetrators.

Some examples of detective characters from TV, film and other mediums are:

Detective Adrian Monk from Monk

Detective Columbo from Columbo

Detective Olivia Benson from Law and Order SVU

Detective Sherlock Holmes from the Sherlock Holmes stories

Detective Zenegotta from Lupin The Third

Detective Philip Marlowe, as portrayed by Humphrey Bogart, in The Big Sleep

Girl Detective Nancy Drew from the Nancy Drew Mysteries

Jimmy Kudo aka Detective Conan from Case Closed

Even Pikachu from Pokemon became a detective in the video game Great Detective Pikachu

So what some of your favorite detective characters?

    I remember seeing a newspaper item, during the 1960s, which said that a crime was being investigated by “the defective branch of the police force”. Made me chuckle.
