Who is your favorite lady detective from movies, books, or TV?

Took me a while to think of it. Clarice Starling from Silence of the Lambs. Didn't think of her as a "lady detective" because she was an FBI agent, not a private eye, but I don't like the mystery genre and at first all I could think of were several extremely annoying lady detectives including those written by Agatha Christie. The detective genre seems to encourage the sorts of backbiting, bullying and rotten behavior you wouldn't tolerate from anyone else in life or in fiction all because they're off trying to catch and punish a murderer, who's usually boring anyway and did it out of greed. Anyone half as clever and ruthless as the villains of these things would have found other successful ways of ripping people off and wound up with more money and a fine reputation in a bank or large corporation or something.

Then there's the loony ones that view Not Getting Caught At The Perfect Murder as some sort of art form, which is pretty funny because you do art to be appreciated. This would really only work within a coven of vampires where you could unveil your wonderful Perfect Murder in all its tricks to a coterie of amused art appreciators, and probably serve them the next victim for dinner anyway.
