What does "true detective" mean

Post by Lignator » Tue Nov 27, 2018 11:30 pm

I'm not sure what "true" and "detective" exactly mean here. I could only think of the following:
1) a detective story based on true events
2) a detective (person) who's very good at his job, but wouldn't that be a "real detective"? I'm a little bit confused.

Thank you in advance.
