The Murders in the Rue Morgue is a short story published by Edgar Allan Poe in 1841.

Two women, mother and daughter, are murdered in Paris. Since the police cannot find out anything about the case, an amateur detective named Dupin decides to investigate the case on his own and clarify the facts.

Dupin is rational and analytical. Many other modern researchers from other literary works are based on his figure. After a meticulous analysis and using analytical thinking, he manages to discover what the police did not find out and connect the unconnected ends of the murder. At the murder scene, Dupin finds a hair that does not appear to be human...

It has been the forerunner of police novels, since it combines all the characteristics and elements of a detective story.

I was deeply interested in the little family history which he detailed to me with all that candor which a Frenchman indulges whenever mere self is the theme.


Books, indeed, were his sole luxuries.


...and into this bizarrerie, as into all his others, I quietly fell; giving myself up to his wild whims with a perfect abandon.
