Studer, Inspector. Inspector Studer was created by the Swiss author Friedrich Glauser and appeared in six novels and a number of stories from around 1930 to 1938.

Inspector Studer is a Swiss police inspector active in Switzerland in the 1920s and 1930s. Studer is clearly influenced by Jules Maigret, but Studer’s stories have a class-based edge which the Maigret stories largely lack. Studer is ungainly-looking and is always underestimated by criminals, but he uses intuition, a healthy amount of common sense, and a good knowledge of human nature to solve crimes. In the Studer stories the lower and middle classes among whom Studer operates and lives are inevitably the victims, and the upper classes are usually vile exploiters.
