In 1946, rights to the title Détective were sold to the French Beyler group, who published it as Qui? Détective until 1958.  In this and other galleries, we will present covers of the various incarnations of Détective as it changed title and style several times from the end of World War II until the present day.  This gallery features issues of Qui? Détective from 1955, when it combined human interest stories, coverage of various royal families, articles on sport and, of course, reports on crimes of all kinds.  In this year, in particular, we find stories about the plight of children and of women murdered by their partners or spouses.  In this year, as well, we find Qui? Détective taking credit, in its November 7th issue, for having assisted an imprisoned man named Edmond Guillemoy in being exonerated for the crime for which he had been found guilty.
