Looking for a good biography but this can also be a place where we discuss good philosophical and literary reactions to napoleon (e.g. Crime and Punishment).

What does Crime and Punishment have to do with Napoleon? Do you mean War and Peace?

Raskolnikov models himself off of Napoleon because Napoleon killed a lot of people and didn't care (that is the extent of his philosophy).

I finished Andrew Roberts' Napoleon: A Life just earlier today. A fantastic read, though don't expect a particularly deep analysis of the individual battles. There's other, more detailed literature for that.

I love Napoleon
