Emile Gaboriau (Saujon-in-Saintonge, 1832 - Paris, 1873) is a writer French, considered as the father of the detective novel. Its character, the Lecoq investigator, influenced Conan Doyle for the creation of Sherlock Holmes.
He exerted various trades: clerk of solicitor, hussard in Africa, chief of stable. He engaged in the cavalry for seven years but terminated his contract quickly to gain Paris where he wrote chronicles to earn his living. He became the secretary of Paul Féval with which he discovered journalism.
Its first novel, the business Lerouge was an immense success. One sees there the appearance of Lecoq, agent of the safety which will become a famous police chief. This character inspired Conan Doyle, as model of the clever detective who solves enigmas by his deductive capacities except standards. But, unlike Sherlock Holmes, the investigations of Lecoq rest on more realistic investigations, closer to progress of the scientific police of the time. The detective novels of Gaboriau make penetrate the intrigue in social environments. It describes the environment in a manner which can be qualified of “naturalist”. In that, its influence on the French detective novel remains very important.

Mr Lecoq was adapted to the cinema by Maurice Tourneur in 1914.
