Abstract [en]

This essay will show that all the elements needed in a detective novel according to definition, are not present in the novel Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem, due to the difficulty in assigning the role of the detective, finding a murderer and solving the puzzle. Moreover, this essay will show that the varied modes of narration and the influence of Gothic elements interfere with the construction of the text as a detective novel.
