Interesting that Freeman was the one who "invented" the "inverted detective story" in the West. All the Chinese detective stories from the Ming and Ch'ing dynasties were "inverted detective stories". The Judge Dee stories by the Dutch sinologist and diplomat Van Gulik were inspired by them in fact.
Funny I did not notice they were "inverted detective stories" when I first read the Dr Thorndyke books.
