Fictional Death and Scientific Truth: The Truth-value of Science in Contemporary Forensic Crime Fiction

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

The author explores the relationship between science and truth in forensic crime fiction by analysis of narrative and media specific constituents of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Cornwell’s The Scarpetta Factor. Both are found to convey strong bonds between science and truth, and readers/viewers are likely to assume that this is the case also in the external world.
