World's Greatest Detective indeed

Back to Batman.

In Detective Comics #34 (by Gardner Fox, Bob Kane, and Sheldon Moldoff), Bruce Wayne is still in Europe, on his way home after the events of Detective 31 and 32. At his hotel, he sees a guy across the lobby wearing a trenchcoat with a pulled-down hat and thinks he recognizes the chap as "old Jed Farnol."

This leads to a gothic tale involving a wicked count, a family fortune, and the stupidest death trap ever, but the real mystery is what the heck did Bruce Wayne see in this guy that reminded him of his buddy Jed?
