While crime fiction is one of the most widespread of all literary genres, this is the first book to treat it in its full global is the first book to treat crime fiction in its full global and plurilingual dimensions, taking the genre seriously as a participant in the international sphere of world literature. In a wide-ranging panorama of the genre, twenty critics discuss crime fiction from Bulgaria, China, Israel, Mexico, Scandinavia, Kenya, Catalonia, and Tibet, among other locales. By bringing crime fiction into the sphere of world literature, Crime Fiction as World Literature gives new insights not only into the genre itself but also into the transnational flow of literature in the globalized mediascape of contemporary popular culture.

Review:

"Here we have a study of crime fiction that, for once, is not satisfied with rounding up the usual suspects, but is fully aware that, like crime itself, crime fiction is a worldwide phenomenon. What is more, true to its 'world literature' perspective, this collection of essays has a close and rewarding look at the market mechanisms and the vicissitudes of translation without which crime novels (and novels in general) would be doomed to stay within their national orbits." - Hans Bertens, Distinguished Professor of the Humanities, Utrecht University, the Netherlands, and former President of the International Comparative Literature Association

"Crime fiction is read around the world in many different languages, and now we have an excellent and comprehensive collection of critical essays on world crime literature for those with a taste for murder and mayhem." - Clive Bloom, Emeritus Professor of English and American Studies, Middlesex University, UK
