Edgar Allan Poe’s The Murder in the Rue Morgue is decorated as the first detective story and C. Auguste Dupin became a benchmark for all the fictional detectives that followed.
C. Auguste Dupin is investigating into the murder of two young women, with witnesses disagreeing on the language spoken by the suspect when they heard them, and a hair that doesn’t belong to a man or woman. The methods the detective used and the way of storytelling defines the genre that followed, as Poe lit the torch.
