This book constitutes an introduction to crime writing in Italian from its first development in the 1930s to the present day. It explores the distinctive features of the Italian tradition, such as the close links with the American and French tradition and the social commentary which characterizes much crime fiction in Italian in the post-war period. This study focuses on novels by selected Italian writers, including those with international reputation, such as Leonardo Sciascia and Umberto Eco, and the new generation of crime writers of the Bologna school. This book analyses the contribution crime fiction makes more generally to contemporary Italian and European culture.
