A detective story writer: exploring Stockholm as it once was
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Social Anthropology.
2013 (English)In: City & Society, ISSN 0893-0465, E-ISSN 1548-744X, Vol. 25, no 2, 260-270 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

There has been a change in the typical setting of detective fiction, from small, closed, tranquil communities to urban contexts of greater opacity and diversity. Its hero/heroine is thus now a recurrent figure in a global genre of urban fiction; and the actual detective story writer is a connoisseur of life in the big city. In this article I point to a certain affinity between detective stories and urban ethnography, and proceed to suggest some contrasts between Swedish writers who have recently achieved international fame and a writer of an earlier generation whom I knew personally. This is a way of demonstrating changes in the urban scene of Stockholm, and transformations in Swedish national society.
