The Scottish doctor and author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle invented a character that made him world-famous: Sherlock Holmes.
The protagonist of his novels is considered the personification ofa master detective. Highly intelligent, factual and with precision, Sherlock Holmes solves any crime - often when even Scotland Yard fails. But his personality is also slightly eccentric and reclusive. Maybe these are exactly the characteristics, that make him so popular with his readers ....Doyle's unusual master detective with pipe and tweed cap reached cult status and remains one of the bestloved protagonists in criminal literature even today. In the final novel 'His Last Bow' Conan Doyle shocked the fans - and let Sherlock Holmes die.
Did you know that ... ... the literary death of Sherlock Holmes in London made many readers wear a black tie around their arm?
... Conan Doyle let his hero 'die' in 1893 in a fight against his archenemy Professor Moriarty - despite the plea of his mother, who was a big fan of the London detective?
... Conan Doyle's book 'The Hound of the Baskervilles' was one of the top 25 crime books of all time?
