Abstract
In the late Qing and the early Republic period, detective novels came on the stage of literature and stood high in the public’s favor. Zhili jingcha zazhi (Chihli Police Magazine) cast positive influence on the dissemination of western police theory and the creation of detective novels in China. The prosperity of detective novels was closely related to such factors as the political thought, the cultural tradition and the reading habit of the period. The value detective novels reflected was the scientific spirit. Being embodiment of justice, the positive characters of these novels were heroes adored and expected by the people.
