Carson, Dr. Dr. Carson appeared in the Danish dime novel Dr. Carson #1-7 (1926).

Dr. Carson is a Superhuman Great Detective. The English Carson has both “incisive logic” and the unique ability to peer into the souls of men and women and perceive the truth there, as well as a superhuman ability at hypnosis. Many of his cases have mystic elements to them, especially those involving Yellow Peril Tongs. (It’s hinted that Carson was trained in the East). Carson is balding and smokes a pipe. Carson appears in stories with titles like “The Red Circle,” “The Man Without a Soul,” and “The Invisible.”
