Abstract

The Hollywood film noir has always been a “melting-pot” of new forms of narration that radically transformed modern crime fiction: in this sense, one can trace the origins of the so-called Procedural fiction back to the Forties, and on this basis define its development. This essay aims to follow these threads and show how modern serial procedural fiction goes back to classic narratives (the scientific gaze in CSI), themes (the split identity of Dexter, the gender roles reversal in The Killing), and stylistic features (the widespread revival of traditional low-key visual design).
