Approaches to Scandinavian Crime Fiction

    Research output: Working paperResearch


    The working paper discusses some of the
    major approaches to Scandinavian crime fiction in
    the light of the dominant features of crime culture,
    e.g. the broad exposure of crime fiction via different platforms and media. In this connection, the
    concept of mediatization is considered as well as
    the approach of genre typology and the concept of
    evil – seemingly disparate concepts and approaches,
    but all related to the complex processes in the borderlands between crime fiction and society. Using
    examples from Scandinavian crime fiction, I discuss
    whether the growing proximity to international genres, ways of production and standards increasingly
    removes Scandinavian crime fiction from its original attractions or not.
