It may seem strange, but the character of Sherlock Holmes created by Arthur Conan Doyle was actually a crime investigator at one point, working on more than one case. Here is the story behind that bit of information.
The inventor of Sherlock Holmes also solved crimes in real life. In the early 1900s, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle noticed inconsistencies in the closed cases of 2 men he believed to be falsely accused. He investigated the cases, solved them both, paid for some of the court costs, got them released from prison, and the publicity from his efforts led to the UK’s creation of an official Court of Appeals.

I find it interesting that the man who invented the famous detective became quite a detective in his own right. Only seems fair to me, though.
Coffee inside this morning. Rain is expected first thing.
