Poirot at 100: the refugee detective who stole Britain’s heart

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

A hundred years ago, Agatha Christie introduced British readers to a small man with an impeccably maintained moustache who, with the help of his “little grey cells”, was very good at solving crimes. That man, of course, was Hercule Poirot, who made his debut in Christie’s first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, in 1921.
