Beginnings of detective fiction In ancient literature Some scholars have suggested that certain ancient and religious texts bear similarities to what would later be called detective fiction. In the Old Testament story of Susanna and the Elders the Protestant Bible locates this story within the apocrypha , the account told by two witnesses breaks down when Daniel cross-examines them. The author Julian Symons has commented on writers who see this as a detective story, arguing that "those who search for fragments of detection in the Bible and Herodotus are looking only for puzzles" and that these puzzles are not detective stories. In this story, a fisherman discovers a heavy, locked chest along the Tigris river and he sells it to the Abbasid Caliph , Harun al-Rashid. When Harun breaks open the chest, he finds inside it, the dead body of a young woman who had been cut into pieces. The whodunit mystery is solved when the murderer himself confesses his crime.

Although the historical characters may have lived in an earlier period such as the Song or Tang dynasty most stories are written in the latter Ming or Qing period. These novels differ from the Western tradition in several points as described by van Gulik: the detective is the local magistrate who is usually involved in several unrelated cases simultaneously; the criminal is introduced at the very start of the story and his crime and reasons are carefully explained, thus constituting an inverted detective story rather than a "puzzle"; the stories have a supernatural element with ghosts telling people about their death and even accusing the criminal; the stories are filled with digressions into philosophy, the complete texts of official documents, and much more, making for very long books; the novels tend to have a huge cast of characters, typically in the hundreds, all described as to their relation to the various main actors in the story.

Van Gulik chose Di Gong An to translate because it was in his view closer to the Western tradition and more likely to appeal to non-Chinese readers. One notable fact is that a number of Gong An works may have been lost or destroyed during the Literary Inquisitions and the wars in ancient China.

Only little or incomplete case volumes can be found; for example, the only copy of Di Gong An was found at a second-hand book store in Tokyo , Japan.

Most of the stories are written from the point of view of Ajit Bandhopadhay, who meets Byomkesh in the mess at Chinabazar. It is Byomkesh who later requests Ajit to live with him at his three-story rented house at Harrison Road as his assistant and chronicler. The only other person in his household is his attendant Putiram. In the beginning of the stories, Byomkesh Bakshi is described as "a man of twenty-three or twenty-four years of age who looked well educated. He does not live in luxury but possess numerous books. He travels frequently, and does not own a gun and does not consider himself to be an "expensive helper". His habits include smoking, and drinking lots of cups of tea with milk.
