The Best Female Sleuths from Popular Culture
According to Sadie Trombetta,
Yeah, I know...
In March 2016, criminalelement.com asked Sadie Trombetta to list The 13 Best Female Sleuths from Pop Culture. The list was sharp, to the point and just a whole lot of fun. So much so that barely two weeks later, Sadie provided The Best Female Sleuths in Pop Culture, Part II, which yielded another twemnty-three worthy gumshoes.
Sure, you can quibble at some of the choices, and some of the rankings (Dana Scully from the X-Files over Nancy Drew?) place undue weight on sleuths from television and film. It should also be noted that not all of the "detectives" are actually private eyes (or even detectives), but overall I thought both lists were a lot of fun, and Sadie gets extra points for venturing beyond the movie/TV world to include quite a few detectives from literature and other sources.
Here are both lists, but do yourself a favour and follow the two links above to catch some of Sadie's breezy but razor-sharp comments on each of these gumshoes...
