I do not see Spade as screwed in the noir sense (just everyday, time will heal screwed). However, I do not see him as a hero either.

**************** Spade endangers himself to discover the truth. He resists the temptation of a pretty girl and reveals her crime to the law. It's not a big stretch to see him as a hero.
