It’s never too late to discover the canon of Sherlock Holmes. The character might have transcended his books a long time ago, but nothing can beat the feel of his original Victorian stories. We tend to forget that a figure as legendary as Holmes, the touchstone of crime fiction and the inspiration behind many real-life careers in forensics and medicine, made his debut as the protagonist of short tales published in The Strand magazine. His adventures have lost nothing of their punch, cleverness and wry humour; as the world success of BBC’s Sherlock demonstrates, they are now more relevant than ever.
So, below is our selection of Sherlock Holmes books. There’s something for everyone – the new reader, the long-time Sherlockian looking for an elegant boxed set, or the Sherlock fan collecting BBC editions. We’ve even suggested Sherlock stories that are not strictly in the canon - in case you want more!
