Un thriller ma anche una malinconica storia d'amore e di solitudine, un noir in cui l'intensità della parola e la qualità della scrittura hanno la stessa importanza dell'intreccio. L'Iguana è un serial killer che uccide chi incontra per assumerne l'aspetto e l'identità, quasi inseguendo una sua personale forma di immortalità e di reincarnazione. Il detective è una poliziotta, una ragazza dura e solitaria che fa il suo mestiere con dedizione assoluta: del passato dell'Iguana sa tutto, ma come prevedere le sue prossime mosse?

Focusing on contemporary crime narratives from different parts of the world, this collection of essays explores the mobility of crimes, criminals and investigators across social, cultural and national borders. The essays argue that such border crossings reflect on recent sociocultural transformations and geopolitical anxieties to create an image of networked and interconnected societies where crime is not easily contained. The book further analyses crime texts’ wider sociocultural and affective significance by examining the global mobility of the genre itself across cultures, languages and media. Underlining the global reach and mobility of the crime genre, the collection analyses types and representations of mobility in literary and visual crime narratives, inviting comparisons between texts, crimes and mobilities in a geographically diverse context. The collection ultimately understands mobility as an object of study and a critical lens through which transformations in our globalised world can be examined.
