Peter Falk = Columbo = Porfiry Petrovich

Just making sure the "RIP Peter Falk" thread gets off on the right foot. To talk about Peter Falk means to talk about Dostoyevskiy

I think Poe's detective was more like Sherlock Holmes than Porfiry Petrovich.

Holmes was very astute in the way he identified clues and put them together. Very logical.

But Porfiry Petrovich was more psychological. He didn't collect clues from crime sites--he collected them from the crime suspects. And he knew how to psych out the interviewee; in the end he'd have a confession rather than a case based on material evidence.
