Today UK Google users will enjoy Google Doodle inspired by crime novelist Agatha Christie.

Celebrating the 120th birthday of the crime novelist, the special Google logo crime scene (embedded above, via) includes the mustache of her famous detective, Hercule Poirot. Google regularly launches special Google Doodle logos to celebrate special events.

In addition, HarperCollins announced some major Christie news today. eBookNewser has the scoop: “HarperCollins Publishers is taking over the exclusive worldwide English rights to Agatha Christie’s work including digital and audio formats … This is the first time since the 1980s that all of Christie’s books have been with a single publisher in the U.S. and the only time the program has been with one publisher worldwide.” (Via the Guardian)
