Bigger. Bigger was created by George Stanley (Black Pilgrim) and appeared in six stories which were collected in Gangsters All (1945).

Detective-Inspector Harry Bigger is “six-feet-two of indolence” and is “credited with being the luckiest man in the Force…as an ex-public school and university man, he had entered the police force, backed by no influence but his own courage, resource, and an infallible belief in his ‘luck.’” Bigger is moderately intelligent, but is much more lucky in solving his cases, and that turns out to be more important.
