Detective work.

The last place to look is in the closet for skeletons. Look first on carpets and between floorboards for blood stains.

Whodunit?

The moralist who discovers their own hypocrisy is like the detective who finds out they are the criminal.

Oplev, “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”

“Whodunit?” is the least interesting part of a detective story, just as “will they do it?” is the least interesting part of a love story.

Powers of detection.

A good detective solves a mystery that no one else can solve. A brilliant detective solves a mystery that no one else realizes is a mystery.

I am you and you are me.

You are the impenetrable mystery. I am the detective without a clue.
