The Detective

De Quincy said that anyone would be jealous of his own duplicate; "and if I had a doppelganger I might attempt the crime of murder upon him."

Genet was "haunted by the idea of a murder which would cut me off irremediably" from our world.

But Chesterton got it right when he declared: "The criminal is the creative artist; the detective only the critic."
