Re Ed's post below:

"However, there are times when SH breaks out of this, setting himself
up, a la his hardboiled cousin, as above the law. There are a couple of
stories (titles escape me, I could dig 'em out on request) in which SH
allows killers to go free, and one (like that Op story) in which SH
allows someone to be killed (ditto title stuff)."

Holmes lets the criminal go in "The Blue Carbuncle." There may be
others. He allows the titular blackmailer in "Charles Augustus
Milverton" to be killed without doing anything about it. Again, there
may be others. - Jim Doherty
