Inspectors Reginald Wexford (Ruth Rendell), Jimmy Perez and Vera Stanhope (Ann Cleeves), and Armand Gamache (Louise Penny).

I've spent many a late night solving mysteries with these sleuths...

Also, Alan Bradley's books about the cute eleven-year old detective, Flavia de Luce, are a real hoot!!!!

Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse. Then again, those are the only mysteries I can remember reading, other than Agatha Christie's Ten Little Indians (which had no sleuth).

I like of the violent, no-nonsense type sleuths than the cerebral types. Not sure why. Philip Marlowe's pretty good, but I thinking more of James Ellroy's antiheroes. I guess I just like reading action scenes more than intellectual conversations.

With me it's entirely the opposite - my favourite type of detective is the intellectual problem-solving variety.

Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot.
Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody.
Hazel Holt's Sheila Malory (I have only read four books in her cosy mystery series, but have enjoyed them a lot).
Derek Landy's Skulduggery Pleasant (YA contemporary fantasy).
P. D. James' Adam Dalgliesh.

There are plenty more I've enjoyed, but that would be a pretty long list...

Agreed. She's kind of like Merricat from We Have Always LIved in the Castle...if she had devoted her morbid imagination and peculiar obsession with poisons towards the solving of crimes, rather than the committing of them. But Flavia is infinitely more fun and sociable with a witty and acid-like tongue.

I've only read the first book (The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie), but intend to read the rest in the series. It's that good.

Lawrence Block's Matthew Scudder is a good one.

And for me, it's the human-nature solving variety; Maigret being my favourite.

I'd always sloppily thought mysteries were more or less the same, but this discussion is showing some distinct types. Very interesting!
