Referring to himself as a "truth-seeker" in the stories, Bakshi is known for his proficiency with observation, logical reasoning, and forensic science which he uses to solve complicated cases, usually murders. The character has often been called the Indian version of Sherlock Holmes. Initially appearing in the story Satyanweshi , the character's popularity immensely increased in Bengal and other parts of India. Both of Byomkesh' names have since entered the Bengali language to describe someone who is both intelligent and observant.
It is also used sarcastically to mean someone who states the obvious. Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay's most well known fictional character Byomkesh Bakshi first appeared as a character in the story Satyanweshi The Inquisitor. The story is set in in the Chinabazar area of Kolkata where a 'non-government detective' Byomkesh Bakshi, owing to the permission from the police commissioner, starts living in a mess in that area under the pseudonym of Atul Chandra Niyogi to probe a series of murders.
Most of the stories are written from the point of view of Ajit Bandhopadhay, who meets Byomkesh in the mess at Chinabazar. It is Byomkesh who later requests Ajit to live with him at his three-story rented house at Harrison Road as his assistant and chronicler. The only other person in his household is his attendant Putiram. In the beginning of the stories, Byomkesh Bakshi is described as "a man of twenty-three or twenty-four years of age who looked well educated.
He does not live in luxury but possess numerous books. He travels frequently, and does not own a gun and does not consider himself to be an "expensive helper".
His habits include smoking, and drinking lots of cups of tea with milk. He is fluent in Bengali , Hindi , and English. Byomkesh does not like being called a detective, and thinks the word 'investigator' even worse. Thus he fashions a new name for himself which he inscribes on a brass plate in front of his house.
Unlike other lead characters in detective fictional stories, Byomkesh Bakshi marries, ages, and also contemplates material things such as buying a car. Later, he also decides to buy land in Keyatala in South Kolkata and shifts to his new home. The story 'Adim Ripu' provides some information about Byomkesh's early childhood.
His father Mahadev Bakshi was a mathematics teacher at a school and practised Sankhya philosophy at home while his mother was the daughter of a Vaishnavite. When Byomkesh was seventeen years old, his parents died of tuberculosis.
Later, Byomkesh passed University with scholarship. Byomkesh gradually ages through the series, and has a son called Khoka Little Boy in the series.
Saradindu Bandopadhyay penned 32 Byomkesh stories from to prior to his death. In his early stories, Ajit Bandhopadhyay is described as his companion, and chronicler of his stories. The stories are all written in traditional formal Bengali language.
However, later the stories shift to more colloquial language. The stories are not very complicated but very engaging, with a long series of surprising events. The stories present a range of crimes from the first story, Satyanweshi , where Byomkesh destroys an international drug racket, to household mysteries and crimes like Arthamanartham , Makorshar Rosh , etc.
Sharadindu did not want to continue the Byomkesh stories, due to which he stopped writing from to During that time he busied himself writing scripts for films in Bombay.
