Example text

Expanding Boundaries 49 the decolonialized maquis, the product of higher education, or the ambitious career-driven jeune cadre – makes him an anti-new-man. His unapologetic disdain of progress and reluctance to modernize make him a throwback to an older culture, and an icon of a culture on the verge of disappearance. Malet further expands the boundaries of detective fiction by including topical issues in his fiction such as postwar renovation, the tension between former collaborationists and resistance fighters, and the beginnings of the end of colonialism.

That the two stories of “crime” and “enquête” can coexist in a detective novel is paradoxical for Todorov, which he dismisses by labeling the story of the crime as a story of absence. ”78 “Paradoxical” characterization does not hold for a roman noir, whose second story, the story of the investigation, is more important than the story of the initial crime. The noir story, with its first-person narration, reads as if we are tagging along with the detective, “le récit coïncide à l’action,”79 as opposed to the flashback récit of the énigme.
