The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle by Arthur Conan DoyleThe general public eagerly awaited the publication of the Strand Magazine each month to get read about the next case of Sherlock Holmes. In The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle Conan Doyle offers up a tale of goodwill that has a darker flipside.
The goodwill sees Sherlock Holmes trying to return a hat and goose lost by someone on Christmas Day, but the story then deals with the theft of a precious stone, the Blue Carbuncle.
The prowess of Holmes is displayed in the detective deducing much about the owner of the hat and the goose simply from examining the battered hat; though, the solving of the missing stone has much more to do with legwork than deduction.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle imbues a certain amount of humour into The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle, humour that is not present in most of the short stories, but of course, there is also darkness, as a serious crime has been committed as well.

As with so many of the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes stories, the Granada TV series, with Jeremy Brett as Holmes, faithfully keeps to the original storyline for its adaptation of The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle.
