Maybe I don't know what 'comic' means, but I had high expectations from this book and all the stories are...dumb? Only liked 'Malice in Blunderland' and 'Tickled to Death', though they do not fall under my category of Comic Crimes. None of them do.

Shelves: mystery, humorous, crime
Donald Westlake's "Come Again" -- pretty good
Nicholas Blincoe's "My Mother Was a Bank Robber" -- not very good
Jack Adrian's "The Absolute and Utter Impossibility of the Facts of the Vanishing of Henning Voli" -- a closed-room mystery in which the contortionist flushes himself down the toilet
Mark Twain's "Double Barrelled Mystery" - very good

I don't think any of these stories even made me smile a little bit.
