First there was Sherlock Holmes. Then, there was Inspector Morse. Now, there's Detective Rebus. The fictional sleuth has attracted a slew of devotees in England.

Detective Inspector John Rebus is the brainchild of Scottish crime novelist Ian Rankin. The Inspector Rebus series includes seventeen books, most recently the 2007 Exit Music. Ten of the novels were adapted for a television series of the same name.
