'The Murders in the Rue Morgue' is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe published in Graham's Magazine in 1841. It has been claimed as the first detective story; Poe referred to it as one of his 'tales of ratiocination'. Similar works predate Poe's stories, including Das Fräulein von Scuderi (1819) by E.T.A.
