The moment you've been waiting for is here. The voting last week was very interesting because in most of these contests, the detectives danced back and forth before one pulled out and stayed ahead. But with almost 900 votes last week, the detectives moving on to Round 4/the Elite 8 are:
Harry Bosch (90%) vs. Alan Banks (10%)
Sam Spade (60%) vs. Kinsey Milhone (40%)
Alex Cross (35%) vs. Sherlock Holmes (65%)
Lincoln Rhyme (60%) vs. John Rebus (40%)
Elvis Cole (60%) vs. Lew Archer (40%)
Phillip Marlowe (58%) vs. Spenser (42%)
Lucas Davenport (43%) vs. Hercule Poirot (57%)
Kurt Wallander (44%) vs. Dave Robicheaux (56%)
And there you have it. I thought it was rather interesting how many of the matches were at or very near a 60/40 split. Should make next week's voting rather challenging for everyone, especially since next week comes down to classic detective vs. modern detective. Yikes! Round 4 will open Monday morning, so let all your friends know!
See you then! Happy Reading!
