This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Hercule Poirot
Hercule Poirot is the ancestor of Adrian Monk
Two Words: Super OCD. Perhaps Poirot and Countess Vera Rossakoff had more than a little admiration for each other...

Poirot wears a fake mustache in Curtain because he lost the original in The Big Four
After faking his death due to a explosion Poirot disguised himself as Achille in that disguise he had a scar in a location where it would impossible to grow a mustache as such he'd obviously have to wear a fake mustache for the rest of his life just like he did during the first part of his Achille act, that's why he had a fake mustache in Curtain.
