(My parents had a copy of Lecherous Limerics, which I read thoroughly at a tender age. When I picked up the book again, many years later, they seemed rather objectionable: crude, misogynistic and thoroughly unreconstructed).
He also wrote mysteries. Basically, I, Robot was a series of crime mysteries set in a future with... robots. I'd imagined them turning it into a CSI-style movie with mind-bending feats of detective work... but... alas... they turned it into a commercial for sneakers and Audis that just happened to feature the main character of the book in the supporting cast.
You're mixing up stories. I, Robot was a series of short stories demonstrating some interesting effects of the Three Laws. Caves of Steel and it's sequels were the ones with the crime mysteries.
Not specifically crime mysteries... but mysteries (well, except the one with the robot going in circles... as they already knew what the problem was... they just had to figure out how to solve it!) that Calvin has to solve using the Laws of Robotics. Puzzlers, if you will.
