Y'know, I thought of both of those, for much the same reasons. For the life
of me, though, I can't figure out WHY I think of a Tsalmoth as "tenacious".
The Iorich would certainly fit, but every time we've seen reference to an
Iorich it's a reference to something that amounts to a judge or a lawyer.
I'm not aware of any examples of an Iorich investigator. Iorich seem to be
all about interpretation and application of the law. Investigation may not
be their forte, neccesarily. Khaavren himself is an able investigator; he
doesn't ring for an Iorich detective to solve his problems. 

You're right that Javert's sense of justice would do an Iorich proud, so I
certainly wouldn't object to him being an Iorich. ;-)
