“Who’s speaking?”“Mr. Smith, in person.”“Oh! Mr. Smith? The Chancellor of the Exchequer here! How are you, old bean? … Hello? … Hello!” (chapter 6; the translation's my own and I've taken some liberty with punctuation)
|Why yes, it's another comic book adaptation!|
Another note: According to the back of my copy of the book, L'Assassin habite au 21 was voted as the best roman policier of all-time, beating out The Mystery of the Yellow Room and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. I am not sure when this vote took place and where, but it's that kind of classic right enough.
Final note: The post title is the name of chapter 22.
