Covering territory from Rififi to Run Lola Run to Spiral, a guide to the edgy, gritty best of European noir fiction, films, and television

The invasion of foreign crime fiction, films, and TV—and not just the Scandinavian variety—has opened up incredible new options for crime fiction lovers, but the sheer volume of new European writers and films can daunting. This book provides a highly readable guide for those wanting to look further than the obvious choices as well as a perfect shopping list for what to watch or read before that trip to Paris, Rome, or Berlin. Euro Noir presents a roadmap to the territory and is the perfect travel guide to the genre. From Italy, the guide discusses such influential authors as Andrea Camilleri and Leonardo Sciascia; Mafia crime dramas Romanzo Criminale and Gomorrah; and of the gruesome Gialli crime films. From France and Belgium, it covers important writers from Maigret's creator Georges Simenon to today's Fred Vargas; cult television programs Braquo and Spiral; and films from the classic heist movie Rififi to modern greats such as Hidden, Mesrine, and Tell No One. German and Austrian greats include Jakob Arjouni and Jan Costin Wagner, and such crime films as Run Lola Run and The Lives of Others. The best crime writing and filmmaking from Spain, Portugal, Greece, Holland, and other European countries are also covered.
