Koloska, Detective. Detective Koloska was created by the German author Felicitas von Reznicek and appeared in Shiva und die Nacht der 12 (1943).

Detective Koloska is a Berlin policeman who pursues a group of a dozen corrupt industrialists across Europe, starting in Berlin and finishing in Copenhagen. Known as "Shiva" for the persona he assumes during interrogations (to scare criminals), Koloska is so full of eccentricities that other officers compare him to Poe’s C. Auguste Dupin. Koloska is physically similar to Sherlock Holmes, but is irate when people mistake him for the "miracle detective."
