10 Best SF Detective Novels

io9 has an annotated list of the "Top 10 Greatest Science Fiction Detective Novels Of All Time":
A Philosophical Investigation by Philip Kerr
The Retrieval Artist novels by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
When Gravity Fails by George Alec Effinger
Tea From An Empty Cup by Pat Cadigan
The Automatic Detective by A. Lee Martinez
Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan
Gun, With Occasional Music by Jonathan Lethem
Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams
The Yiddish Policeman's Union by Michael Chabon
The Caves Of Steel by Isaac Asimov

The only one of these I've read is in bold print. The author lists more in an "Other notable titles" section, but I've read none of those. Yet another sub-genre of which I'm woefully ignorant.

While you're over at io9, measure the speed of light using chocolate and a microwave oven and find the answer to the question "What's the expanding universe expanding into?"
