Thin Man

Vincent Price on the radio, circa 1955Softboiled Detectives are also known as golden age detectives and the term "softboiled" is in response to Hardboiled detectives though some detectives don't neatly fit in either category.  Softboiled Detective fiction tends to focus more on plot twist and development sometimes called a whodunit as the audience solves the crime along with the detective. 

Nick Carter radio showSir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes is considered the archetype of the classic detective using his keen mind and deductive reasoning skills to solve crime.  The Softboiled Detective is often cultured and not in need of physical domination to defeat his opponent.  Nero Wolfe used only his mind and his assistant to solve crime and could even tackle cases without leaving his office or his orchid collection.  Vincent Price as The Saint kept fighting to a minimum and relied on "Louie" the Brooklyn Cab Driver to keep him street smart.  Other Softboiled Detectives include: Hercule Poirot, Thin Man, Nick Carter, Mr. Keen, and Adventures of the Abbotts
