Resumé

The chapter sets out the key themes and concerns of contemporary European television crime dramas. The authors introduce relevant topics, including transnational narratives and production practices; the concepts (and phenomena) of Euronoir and Europudding; the contemporary and overarching influence of Nordic Noir; and matters of gender, genre, and generic hybrids. It embeds a survey of previous literature on related subjects, and launches various new perspectives on the rise in European crime drama and beyond. This involves a consideration of the crime genre with obvious built-in transnational potentials as well recent developments in the relationship between crime drama and the supernatural.

    N2 - The TV crime drama is one of the most popular genres for European audiences and arguably also the most culturally sensitive and nuanced. No doubt, this is an effect of the ways in which the genre feeds on social problems and cultural change. The crime drama series is therefore like the proverbial ‘canary down the mine’ when it comes to detecting significant social issues and concerns. It routinely serves as a prism from which to observe the local, national and even transnational issues that are prevalent in a society at any one time.
