Il giallo europeo nel mirino
n°6 Agosto-Settembre-Ottobre del 2006



e d i t o r i a l e

Published at the rate of one every three months, Europolar reaches this seventh edition with a contents list which will once again attract the attention of all enthusiasts for crime fiction.

Europolar tries to provide a multicultural viewpoint given that we have six editorial committees, spread across six European countries. We offer readers the latest news of events as well informing them about what is being published in the genre in their respective countries. We should not forget the contribution of our team of translators who work in 5 languages to permit our readers to overcome the language barrier by giving them access to the majority of articles

Europolar once again contains analyses and reviews of books recently published which deal specifically with crime fiction. It is the commentaries of our contributors from Germany, Belgium, Spain, France and Italy and the UK which you will once again find in edition 7.

The main forum for debate is one which is very current: women and crime fiction. Nobody would deny the importance of contemporary women writers who have literally invaded every area of crime fiction, even the ‘ roman noir' . For the most part they would like to be seen as more than just the simple heirs to the English queens of crime writing from the past. This main theme is also found in interesting articles on this subject which range from the British tart noir to the interview with Barbara Abel.

Amongst the articles you will find a text on the heritage of Fritz Lang, another article in the series presenting specialist magazines featuring the Italian journal Il Falcone Maltese (The Maltese Falcon) and a portrait of the Belgian author, Dirk De Vos. The article by Moez Lahmédi on intertextuality in crime fiction (published in volume 6) attracted a polemical reaction from Okuba Kenataro, whose arguments we publish here. The response to this from Lahmedi is also included to offer a more complete picture. In addition there is a report of a recent crime fiction festival in Italy , and finally a fictional piece - a short story by Raffaele “The Photo”.

As always, this edition of Europolar, produced by our enthusiastic teams, focuses particularly on contemporary crime fiction.

Happy reading!
