Dorothy L. Sayers' Lord Peter Wimsey stories?
Not really classical whodunnit detective stories (except Five Red Herrings and maybe The Nine Taylors - a work of genius), in that the "who" is mostly obvious, but brilliant novels, by far the best literature of all the Golden Age stories. I'm a huge fan.
Maybe not quite what you are looking for, but I'm a big fan of Henning Mankels Wallander series. The televised Montalbano series looked similar to me so they are on my list to try. Not usually into fiction but the Wallander books had me gripped.

EDIT: just picked up a new copy of the first 3 Montalbano books for £5.60 on Amazon from a seller called learnearly books so guess I'm gonna find out!
