I remember reading several of these stories some earlier time. They were interesting to read again, but Chesterton is not one of my favorites. The mysteries are presented with a cryptic and fatalistic twist (and a tinge of antisemitism). The man "who knew too much" maintains that he know all the wrong things, and many of the things he knows are not worth knowing. But in the last story, he comes to know something worth knowing, that is, something worth dying for. Like the man who solves the mysteries, the stories are a bit quirky and odd.
