Well, since we're very good with this whodunnit thing, I decided to launch this little game here.
It's pretty simple. I am someone (person, cartoon, book character, whatever) and everyone else can have a guess at who I am.
The one who guesses it has the next round, and we'll try to guess on him/her.
I hope this works. :-)
To start, I'll give you all one hint: I'm a real person.

I feel the need to recap:

French. Male. In books and on TV. Has been a police detective but has also done other things, some of which may have been on the shadier side of the law.

Is that right for what we know so far?

Is it someone from Edgar Allen Poe?

Is it a French author that is well-known and published in English speaking countries?

Is he in Paris? Or another place in France?

What is his other job? Is he:

A writer?
A lawyer?
An artist?
A politician?
In the law in any way?
In organized crime?
In an secret agency?

Has this character been played by any well-know actors?

It is:

A detective.
In both books and film. Films -- 1911, 1923, 1939, and 2001. Books -- too many to mention.
A male.
VERY good at solving crimes.
A policeman.
Known for things on the wrong side of the law also.
A well-known French authour, and published in many languages, including English.
Located in Paris, and in several other cities, including Arras, Ostend, Brussels, Lille, Brest, Cholet, Rotterdam, Toulon, Louvres, and Saint Mande.
Known for being a writer, politician, involved in the law in several ways, involved in crime (though not organized crime ;-), and in a secret agency (of sorts).
Been played by several well-known actors, most recently Gerard Depardieu.

It is NOT:
Inspector Maigret (sorry, Daenerys, didn't see that one. ;-)
Jacques Clouseau.
Hercule Poirot.
Arsene Lupin.
Someone from Edgar Allan Poe.
A lawyer or artist.

Think that's all of it. ;-D

Small hint: An inspiration to many, including Victor Hugo and H0nore de Balzac. ;-)

Keep goin'!! ;-D

I think I found him, but I must admit I have never heard of him before. Googling definitely broadens the mind :). Thanks for giving us such an interesting detective task, Breit.

He is Monsieur Lecoq by the French writer Emile Gaboriau.

um, no, it's not him. but i like the guess.

maybe this will help. if our guy were allive, he'd be hanging out A LOT in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. If you all can't get it from that, i'll reserve a spot for you in sleuth school.... ;0) L

Lol I give up! Everything pointed to Monsieur Lecoq, from Hugo and Balzac to Gerard Depardieu. But Philadelphia? I'm completely confused :).

OK, I succumbed and Googled and came up with the fascinating Eugène François Vidocq, inspirer among other things of Philadelphia's Vidocq Society. Which I'd never heard of in the real world, but I know the Sleuth agency!

OK, people, time for a new one. I very much doubt I can match Breit for ingenuity, but here goes nothing... ;)
