* BigBadEnsemble: The SerialKiller[[spoiler: Jorges]] who causes the whole book's manhunt and the sinister Inquisitor Bernando Gui who doesn't really contribute anything to the manhunt other than providing scapegoats and unlike the killer he murders in official and socially acceptable ways, so he doesn't need to hide both in-universe and as far as spoilers are concerned.

* RansackedRoom: The herbalist discovers the book and goes to tell William of Baskerville, who tells him to lock himself in his room and let no-one in until he arrives (Baskerville is held up by the theological debate). On returning to his apothecary, he shocked to find the place ransacked. He bolts the door and quickly goes to check the book is still there. It is -- lying on the floor under a table. The herbalist is revealed...until he sees a hooded figure step out from behind a curtain and walk toward him...

%%* Expy: William is a clear expy of Literature/SherlockHolmes. English, preternaturally observant, phlegmatic, calculating, occasionally conceited, and he even chews a mysterious 'herb' to help him concentrate. His name is a clear reference to ''Literature/TheHoundOfTheBaskervilles''. His protegé, Adso of Fulk (the narrator) is the Watson of the relationship.

* ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler:If you read carefully and think about it, you'll notice that this is a detective story where the detective isn't very successful-he even admits it near the end-and the BigBad is never brought to justice.]]

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Pretty much the only thing the film version gets right about the historical Bernardo Gui is that he was an Inquisitor during the fourteenth century. While Gui did convict large numbers of heretics during his tenure, only about five percent of them were executed; he far preferred to prove heresies wrong and bring heretics back into the church than to kill them, and he was always more of a scholar and administrator than a zealot. He's less of a cackling arch-villain in the novel, but not by much.
