Anatomy of Murder
Mystery, Detective, and Crime Fiction
Carl D. Malmgren
Anatomy of Murder identifies and explores three basic fictional forms dealing with murder and detection-mystery, detective, and crime fiction. Mystery fiction takes place in a centered world, one whose most distinctive characteristic is motivation. Covering the forms of murder fiction, the book examines texts by Doyle, Christie, Sayers, Hammett, Chandler, Highsmith, Jim Thompson, Thomas Harris, and others.
