However, it is just today that I've heard about Father Brown, a fictional pastor who solves curious mysteries.
Just a little while ago, I listened to a podcast of "The Invisible Man", which is about a man who goes about invisibly, even when suspected of murdering someone.
It is a very curious case (especially with the angle on semantics), but I was particularly struck by the quiet demeanor of the minister-investigator as he went about the crime particulars. He was seemingly meek and reserved, and the story ended with Father Brown in a manner not unbecoming of a cleric.
This case presented to me a character I am not very familiar with, and I suppose that I will go about trying to find more Father Brown stories now.
Just to note, I heard of the story through The Classic Tales Podcast.
