With Father Brown the author has entered upon a new literary field in a series of detective stories. Strange to say, his hero is not a Sherlock Holmes or a Lecoq, but a gentle little parish priest who uses his knowledge of human nature gained in his religious work to unravel mysterious crimes which have baffled the police. The stories are of the dashing and brilliant kind that Stevenson invented — exciting tales told in artistic manner by a first-class literary hand.

Dies gelingt ihm, indem er sich in den Täter hineinversetzt, dabei das Verbrechen selbst begeht, wie er sagt. Dabei ist er aber weniger daran interessiert, Verbrecher der irdischen Gerechtigkeit auszuliefern, sondern er will sie zu Gott führen; eine freiwillige Beichte des Täters genügt ihm. Dabei spielt es für ihn keine Rolle, welches Amt diese Person bekleidet. Zwischen 1910 und 1935 erschienen neunundvierzig Erzählungen von Chesterton über Father Brown, zunächst in Zeitschriften und anschließend zusammengefasst in mehreren Bänden. Browns einziger Freund ist der ehemalige Trickdieb Hercule Flambeau, der, von Brown bekehrt, zum Privatdetektiv wird. Es gibt übrigens ein reales Vorbild für Father Brown: Father John O’Connor von St. Custherberts, Bradford. Er war der Pfarrer, der Chestertons Konversion zum katholischen Glauben leitete. Die Fälle des Vater Brown sind bereits mehrmals für Kino und TV verfilmt worden. In Deutschland ist besonders die Verkörperung durch Heinz Rühmann bekannt. 1.

Contrary to first impressions, G. K. Chesterton's Father Brown is not senile, nor easily rattled. In fact, this village priest wanders into challenges that pale in comparison to the things he has heard through the screen of the confessional. For to hear Father Brown tell it, crime is a manifestation of sin: the criminal must be caught, but he or she must also be saved; the culprit has to be locked up, but the spirit must be freed.

Father Brown is a fictional Roman Catholic priest and amateur sleuth created in the early 20th century by English novelist G. K. Chesterton.
