Crime writing flourished throughout the 20th century, but also changed - as did its villains. This course looks at some of the worst - Moriarty, that Napoleon of Crime in the Holmes canon (1884-1927) ; the humanised psychopath Jack Havoc in Allingham's The Tiger in the Smoke (1952) ; and the child-killers of Reginald Hill's extraordinary Dalziel-&-Pascoe novel, On Beulah Height (1998).

Please note that this course will be studied remotely.
