Contemporary detective fiction Sidia Fiorato
In contemporary English literature, detective fiction develops according to two main trends which lead to a renewed expression of the founding tenets of the genre: the legal thriller, which posits at the centre of the investigation a specific aspect of the legal system of the society under consideration, and a psychoanalytic approach to criminality which underlines the dualism between the detective and the criminal. Numerous contemporary novels present a fusion between the two trends thus opening new perspectives on the social and individual investigation.
