Unsolved murders

holmesprofile2If you’re anything like me, you prefer a murder mystery to be solved by the time you get to the end of the book. Even if the sleuth doesn’t work it out, you expect the author to reveal who did the deed and why.

We just don’t like being left hanging, not knowing.

Solving murders is definitely one of those aspects of life which is stranger than fiction.

In South Australia, where I live, there are currently more than 100 unsolved murders on the books of SA Police, dating back to 1902. Apparently they never close a case until it’s solved.

Obviously, real investigators don’t enjoy the same level of success as some of our literary legends.

Perhaps we need a few more unresolved murder mysteries on the shelves.

Thanks for dropping by, Peter
