Sample text

Whereas some, for instance, appreciate the formulaic nature of such texts, others value most those crime novels that depart from the formula’s restricting regularities. However, his claim as to the complicated categorisation of the socalled crime fiction genre does seem rather valid. Those who have been attracted to the genre have, in other words, come to face a variety of classifications, most of which have been limiting and confusing rather than helpful, while the definitions adopted were often of a rather overlapping nature.

The different viewpoint types are worth defining here, as the analysis will later come to focus on those extracts that allow access to the criminal viewpoint, whilst elaborating on the nature of that viewpoint. Groups of indicators can be linked together interpretatively, namely in terms of spatio-temporal, psychological and ideological viewpoint (see Simpson, 1993: 11). Spatio-temporal viewpoint ‘refers to the impression which a reader gains of events moving rapidly or slowly, in a continuous chain or isolated segments’ (Fowler, 1986: 127).

Bo ¨ nnemark (1997: 59–60) attempted to distinguish the characteristic features of detective fiction, and set out the differences between that and suspense fiction. For instance she, among other things, claimed that detective stories primarily mystify and demystify, while suspense stories primarily create and release suspense. As Haycraft (1972: 81), however, argues, many stories are difficult to categorise and some do in fact situate themselves on the border between detective and suspense fiction.
