Dickson, Allan. Allan Dickson was created by the French author Arnould Galopin (Francis Dormeuil, Doctor Omega, Fifi, Francis, Jack & Francinet, Julot, Monsieur Paturel, George Edgar Pipe, Tenebras, Jean Tixier) and appeared in four novels from 1920 to 1929, beginning with La Ténébreuse Affaire de Green Park.

Allan Dickson is a Great Detective. He is “the king of Australian detectives" and has the "eye of a lynx" and a cold, calculating spirit. In L’Homme au Complet Gris (1912), Dickson leaves Melbourne and goes to London at the request of an aging “Herlokolms” to help capture Jack the Ripper.
