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.
