Dorothy L. Sayers

English mystery novelist and playwright Dorothy L. Sayers understood that what this world really needed was a crime-solving hero that was equal parts Sherlock Holmes and Bertie Wooster. She set out to meet that need with her series of novels featuring the crime-fighting dandy Lord Peter Wimsey. Unfortunately for mystery lovers everywhere, after thirteen full-length novels she gave up detective fiction forevermore and set off to write theological plays and translate Dante.

Dude, couldn't someone else have translated Dante?
