False Fingerprints: Books and Screens

|Fingerprints are the perfect form of identification, right? Well it turns out that since nearly the beginning of using fingerprints in criminal trials, fictional folks have been figuring out how to defeat the clue collectors. |
In 1928 S.S. Van Dine eschewed stories featuring “forged fingerprints” in “Twenty Rules for Writing Detective Stories.” Fortunately for this quiz, that advice was occasionally ignored (okay, the rule was occasionally broken).
This quiz focuses upon books, movies, and television episodes that include defeating fingerprint technology as a trope.
So dust off your keys, hit “Start Quiz,” and remember not to leave any other clues behind.
