One More Thing

Difficulty: ????
Part of the SummerGame2015 Game

Great detectives don't just appear in books - they're also on your TV! It's true! Go look! We'll start off with the most rumpled of them all. Columbo! He's unassuming. He's chomping pensively on a cigar. It's possible his hair has never been combed, or his trench coat pressed. This TV show turned the mystery show genre on its head by showing the crime - and the perpetrator - at the start of the episode. The audience, then, is watching the detective unravel the clues and come to the right conclusion. And the beauty of Columbo, besides that you can't help but root for the guy, is that just when the perpetrator thinks he's sent this dopey detective off for the last time, Columbo gets him with just one last question. Ha! So, now, as you wish, go forth and find a book that was made into a movie in which the actor who plays Columbo appears as a loveable (and rumpled!) grandpa.
