In this tale, Sherlock Holmes, the brilliant detective, is approached by the King of Bohemia, Wilhelm Gottsreich Sigismond von Ormstein, who seeks Holmes’ help in a delicate matter. The King is about to marry a Scandinavian princess, but he is being threatened by a photograph from his past that could jeopardize his marriage plans. The photograph shows the King with his former lover, the American opera singer Irene Adler.
Holmes takes on the case and employs his exceptional deductive skills to gather information. Disguised as a clergyman, Holmes uncovers Adler’s cunning ways and manages to retrieve the photograph. However, Holmes is impressed by Adler’s wit and integrity and holds her in high regard, calling her “the woman”. In the end, Adler outsmarts the King by escaping with the photograph before his agents can seize it. Although Holmes solves the case, he is left with a sense of admiration for Adler’s intelligence and character, marking a rare instance where his emotions are stirred by a client.
