- In recent decades crime fiction has enjoyed a creative boom. The genre has acquired a global reach, illuminating different corners of the world and spreading through the use of various cultural media. Crime fiction has thus become a vehicle for cultural exchange in the broadest of senses - but what is involved in these processes of transference? Do stories lose or gain value? Are they transformed into something else altogether? This collection responds to these questions and more, by adopting a truly interdisciplinary approach, spanning from literary criticism and philosophy through translation studies to transmediality.
