The British writer Agatha Christie has written over 70 detective novels, and at the center of most of her are two of her favorite creations – Belgian detective Hercule Poirot and a tiny but intuitive Miss Jane Marple who deal with atrocities.
It’s no wonder that despite such extensive literary work, many of them are screened on the big screen, so if you are fond of crimi-mysteries, you have to find time for the following few films:
