Inspector Richard Poole
Richard is not an easy person to get along with, which goes some way to explain why he’s single and why the Met in London were so happy for him to be posted to Saint-Marie.
However, the things that annoy also make him a brilliant detective. He worries at every aspect of a puzzle until it’s solved. He ignores nothing, no matter how inconsequential it seems and this often leads to a breakthrough. He’s not a people person, but he’s a brilliant intuitive analytical mind. Just don’t ask him to make small talk!
