Holmes is very intelligent but he lost in some cases , 3 times are men and 1 is woman. I can summarise the story : the king of Scandinavi asked Holmes to have found a photo of him and a woman which might affect his new wedding. Holmes approached the woman and knew where the photo was hiden, however, she understood what Holmes was doing so she escaped to a foreign country with the photo.
About Dr.Mori, do you think that he died? I have just finished a half of Sherlock Holmes novel so I think he was still alive after he fell down from the peak of a mountain.

Right Illusion! Sherlock was among those who made up my mind! The best friend of mine 7-10 years younger! My mom is addicted to Agatha Cristie and she infected me either!
Have you known the british queen confessed that the best Sherlock Holmes in movies was played by a russian actor!

OK, when I finish reading The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail (I'm about to finish), I'll read The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

The very first story about Sherlock Holmes that I read was The Hound of the Baskervilles. After that story, I was reading Conan Doyle like crazy. I love Sherlock Holmes!!!

I'm right in the middle of the book now.

The Hound of the Baskervilles was the second part.

The book has three episodes and The Hound Of The Baskervilles is the last story of the second episode. I think it is the most interesting and longest story in the series of Sherlock Holmes

I just finished The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes last night. Does anybody know more titles about the detective? His famous enemy, Moriarti, didn't appear on my book.

I loved The Hound of The Baskervilles. I even saw the movie and it was so good! I love the thrill of excitement whenever I read that story! And I think Dr. Watson is a really good character, a true friend to our beloved Sherlock and also a doctor :D lol I like him.
