    Abstract:
    "This essay argues that German regional crime fiction is both a modern development and simultaneously a recollection of crime fiction's journalistic and literary beginnings. ...[R]egional crime fiction has connections to eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Fallgeschichten (case stories) that fascinated a developing reading public and satisfied readers' taste for sensational details with a more local flavor."
