I like Colin Dexter and his Inspector Morse Series. Harry T's post about The Secret of Annexe 3 made me pick it up again.
Colin Dexter is the Will Shortz of Britain.
For those who do not know, Will Shortz is the current Crossword Puzzle Editor of The New York Times.

He also has a Puzzle Podcast Sunday Puzzle that is broadcast on Sundays. It is part of NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday.
