World Famous Detective

I have a soft spot for the movie Murder on the Orient Express. It was on last night and once again I watched it. Even though it was like the 20th time I've seen the movie - a new thought struck me while watching the film.

In the movie - when people first hear the name Hercule Poirot - the reaction is the same. They all ask "The world famous detective?" That got me thinking. Is there such a thing as a world famous detective? I racked my brain and I cannot think of a single one - not past or present.

Maybe its just me but the realization had never struck me before that vampires were closer to reality than characters like Hercule Poirot or Sherlock Holmes.
