THE WINTER QUEEN – BORIS AKUNIN

Akunin’s Winter Queen is a novel written at the very end of the twentieth century but it is about the nineteenth century. Please compare it with the “true” nineteenth-century crime fiction works (in particular Crime and Punishment) we read in terms of how he handles the work of the detectives, the nature of crimes in the nineteenth century, and the role women play.
