Which is correct:
1) Every detective's wife in every crime movie says the same things.
2) Every detectives' wife in every crime movie says the same things.
3) The wife of every detective in every crime move says the same things.
I think in '2' 'detectives' wife' is supposed to work like 'children's book', but I am not sure it does work at all. Maybe 'detective's wife' in '1' works the same way. Not sure.
I prefer '3'. '1' makes me feel like the detective is in the real world and the wife is in the movie!
I think that might be just me!
