Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes is the worlds most famous and recognized fictional detective
"Like the air we breathe, Sherlock Holmes is everywhere. His pipe-smoking, stalker image peers at us from ads in Yellow Pages, to signs for neighborhood crime-watch; from billboards to the classroom; from film and television to the public library, and now over the Internet. He long ago transcended the boundaries of 19th Century London to become an international best-seller and has been accepted as part of British folklore. Holmes is alive to millions of people all over the world."
To many, Holmes remains the standard for the modern day detective story.
