Iberian Crime Fiction traces the origins and development of crime fiction in Spain and Portugal from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. Leading scholars of crime fiction cover all aspects of the genre in the peninsula, including surveys of major authors, a study of women’s crime fiction, a consideration of the rise of the novella negra tradition, and an account of the genre’s mid-1950s peak in popularity, as well as an analysis of current trends and authors.
