Australian Crime Fiction

Stephen Knight, author of Crime Fiction 1800-2000: Detection, Death Diversity and Continent of Mystery: A Thematic History of Australian Crime Fiction, has written a brief overview of Australian crime fiction for "The Age".  In this essay he name checks such people as Peter Temple, Peter Corris, Garry Disher, Kerry Greenwood, Marshall Browne and Lucy Sussex amongst many others.  If you're interested in learning more about how the genre is handled in this country then this is a pretty good launching-pad.
