Seem to recall doing a couple of these way back in the mists of time (when the Needler was a mod, and that's going back some...)

Some elementary exercising of the little grey cells is called for – who created the following detectives?

-1. Kelsey Millhone
-2. Inspector Linley
-3. Miss Marple
-4. Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby
-5. Nancy Drew
-6. John Rebus
-7. Nick and Nora Charles
-8. Hieronymous 'Harry' Bosch
-9. Kurt Wallander
-10. Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro

Any personal recommendations for other good detective writers gratefully received... grin

9. H Mankell. I enjoyed seeing one of his detective stories on PBC.

Excellent answers! bravo

Gerry - I've just started reading the Wallander books after seeing it on the BBC. They had two versions running more or less at the same time - the original Swedish one, and a UK one starring Kenneth Branagh. To be honest, I preferred the original, even if it meant reading subtitles...

Joan - didn't even realise Carolyn Keene didn't exist until I made this quiz up. Looked on Wiki and saw:

"The character first appeared in 1930; the books have been ghostwritten by a number of authors and are published under the collective pseudonym Carolyn Keene "

You live and learn... grin

Urban Worrier I saw the BBC version. That was all I could get on my PBC in the USA. I hope they have more.
