THE LADY IN THE MORGUE - Jonathan Latimer

From 1936 the tale of a body being stolen from a mortuary. The alcoholic Private Investigator along with his equally sodden side kicks raid parties and graveyards alike to locate the body and solve several concomitant homocides.

Its very funny and I would have thought reasonably risque for its time.

It ends with all the crimes being solved and a happy ending in that our hero gets to go off to another party. Not up to'The Thin Man' in quality but not too far away, good fun.
