Project Details


Scandinavian crime fiction has been a success, in Scandinavia as well as internationally. New genres of crime fiction have emerged in books and films, on television and computers. Facts about crime are presented in journalism. How can the relationship between facts and fiction be described? What role does the mediatization play? What do the places of crimes mean? In what ways is crime fiction a part of media culture? Such questions will be the focus of the project.
