Add a list or tag with showdown:whodunit

Knives Out is coming to cinemas this month and in celebration, we want you to whip out your notebooks and uncover your favorite murder mysteries and detective dramas (we’d point you to them ourselves, but we broke our pointing stick). Whodunit hallmarks include a body (or several), a suspect (or several), a hard-boiled detective (or two), a suspicious spouse, a significant location (creaking mansion, moving train, museum that’s missing a famous masterpiece) and any number of red herrings. Whether comedy or thriller, the fun is often in the ensemble, so round up the usual suspects and make a perfect getaway, ’cos we need a big sleep.
