I was also thinking that there have been perfect murders in fact if not in fiction. Murders which have gone unsolved like the Jack the Ripper crimes. In fiction the author has a responsibility to lay enough clues that the reader doesn't feel cheated, but there's no such obligation in reality (if only!)
If I had to pick one Christie novel which I would say was the most cleverly constructed crime, I would probably say The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. Maybe. Count, what's your pick?
But I think the ultimate crime would be conceived by Poirot himself!
I recently finished a huge collection of Agatha Christie's short stories about Poirot. I finished the whole rather fast, and thought about how many people seem to skip this literary achievement of hers. People go for her novels or the movies and forget about the wonderful short stories, that many of the movies are made about.
I especially like the Tasks of Hercule. They are very amusing and well written.
What is your opinion of her short stories?
