The crime fiction thread

I thought I’d make this thread about crime fiction, all crime fiction, in all mediums. So basically you can talk here about your favourite authors, novels, movies, etc. And what the genre means to you and where do you think it can go.

    Anyone into Crime fiction books, check out Joe R Lansdale's Hap & Leonard books. You won't be disappointed.

    Start with Savage Season then Mucho Mojo.....

    I've only read Elmore Leonard and Jim Thompson of these.

    My favourite contemporary ones now are George Pelecanos and Deon Meyer.
