Book Description

16 Oct 2012

With its powerful images of rape and revenge, Stieg Larsson's bestselling Millennium trilogy has made a major impact on the contemporary crime novel. This collection explores the role that rape plays in contemporary crime fiction, examining the sexually violent images at the heart of the Millennium trilogy in its many guises – from novels, to Swedish film adaptations, to Hollywood blockbuster. At the centre of discussion is Larsson's female heroine, Lisbeth Salander, one of popular culture's most unforgettable characters. The collection evaluates her status as a twenty-first century heroine, arguing that what makes Salander so interesting and culturally relevant, is her blend of vulnerability and violence.

Putting Larsson's work into dialogue with a range of contemporary Scandinavian and Anglophone crime novelists, including Jo Nesbø, Håkan Nesser, Mo Hayder and Val McDermid, these essays offer cross-cultural insights into how notions of sexual violence, victims and vengeance are constructed. Opening up a range of vital new questions, the book interrogates the very terms by which we understand and encounter violent images in popular fiction and film.

Product Description

Review

'This is an excellent addition to the growing body of critical literature dealing with cross-cultural developments in crime fiction. Larsson is a controversial writer, and one of the real strengths of this collection is the way it showcases critical debate about some of the most difficult aspects of contemporary crime fiction - its representation of sexual violence; its underlying socio-political agendas and its moral-ethical substance; and the ways in which audiences respond to a genre that is by turns conventional, clichéd, subversive and deeply uncomfortable.' - Lee Horsley

Book Description
