However, as Injū predates The Maltese Falcon, it preempts this banal (and sometimes misleading) explanation. Rather, the striking similarity between Hammett’s and Ranpo’s works should be viewed as evidence potentially pointing to at least two theories. From the standpoint of social history, it can serve as another piece of evidence illustrating what critics Yoshimi Shun’ya and Harry D. 40 Another more formalist explanation would be that Hammett and Ranpo, both students of the formulas and techniques of detective ﬁction, arrived at the same conclusion via diﬀerent paths.
