I was surprised and delighted to discover that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle made his mysteries not only about solving an intellectual puzzle through general observations, but about more psychological observations as well. He has a way of observing human nature that resides not only in scientific objective, but in a more human element. I feel like he "gets" people, and is not simply a predictor of their next move.
As this was written long ago, the solving of a few of the mysteries were obvious. The means by which to solve them has become common knowledge. I like to think this is in part due to the popularity of Sherlock Holmes throughout the years. Some of the mysteries are still difficult to solve, and some in between.
