About this book

A collection of ten original essays forging new interdisciplinary connections between crime fiction and film, encompassing British, Swedish, American and Canadian contexts. The authors explore representations of race, gender, sexuality and memory, and challenge traditional categorisations of academic and professional crime writing.

Reviews

'A wide-ranging collection of essays on crime fiction, television and film which makes valuable new contributions to its subject area. Its crossing of cultural boundaries and a particular focus on issues of spatial representation, generic hybridity and gender mark it as a welcome addition to its field.'

- Peter Messent, University of Nottingham, UK
