Few genres map cultural change as closely as crime writing. Reading works by Doyle, Sayers, Allingham, Reginald Hill and Rankin, this course considers the shift from the ratiocinative story through urban grit to full-blown political portraiture, with evolving representations of police, murdered bodies, forensics and beliefs about crime and punishment.
