Crime fiction is the literary genre that fictionalises crimes, their detection, criminals, and their motives. It is usually distinguished from mainstream fiction and other genres such as historical fiction or science fiction, but the boundaries are indistinct. Crime fiction has multiple subgenres, including detective fiction (such as the whodunit), courtroom drama, hard-boiled fiction and legal thrillers. Most crime drama focus on crime investigation and does not feature the court room. Suspense and mystery are key elements that are nearly ubiquitous to the genre.

Crime Stories - Categories - Netflix

Detective fiction The cozy mystery: a subgenre of detective fiction in which profanity, sex, and violence are downplayed or treated humorously. The whodunit: the most common form of detective fiction. It features a complex, plot-driven story in which the reader is provided with clues from which the identity of the perpetrator of the crime may be deduced before the solution is revealed at the end of the book. The historical whodunnit: also a subgenre of historical fiction. The setting of the story and the crime has some historical significance. The locked room mystery: a specialized kind of a whodunit in which the crime is committed under apparently impossible circumstances, such as a locked room which no intruder could have entered or left. The American hardboiled school: distinguished by the unsentimental portrayal of sex and violence; the sleuth usually also confronts danger and engages in violence. The police procedural: the detective is a member of the police, and thus the activities of a police force are usually convincingly depicted. Forensic crime fiction; similar to the police procedural. The investigator the reader follows is usually a medical examiner or pathologist—they must use the forensic evidence left on the body and at the crime scene to catch the killer. This subgenre was first introduced by Patricia Cornwell. The legal thriller: the major characters are lawyers and their employees, and they become involved in proving their cases. The spy novel: the major characters are spies, usually working for an intelligence agency. The caper story and the criminal novel: the stories are told from the point of view of the criminals. The psychological thriller or psychological suspense: this specific subgenre of the thriller genre also incorporates elements from detective fiction, as the protagonist must solve the mystery of the psychological conflict presented in these types of stories. The parody or spoof.
