"I'd been waiting for two one-legged twins to turn up."

Mes Amis

The best detective novel ever written (and brought up recently by that bloody brilliant, smart-as-a-chap-with-two-heads SF writer China Mieville, who's been talking about crime fiction recently) is, of course, LADY DON'T FALL BACKWARDS, by Darcy Santo: and what an ending it had, too:

This brings back many memories for me; my dad is a big Hancock fan, and this was always one of his favourite episodes (mine too, as it happens).

(With hat tip to Ray Banks who pointed out Mieville's thoughts and posted the clip first)

Au revoir
