Abstract

This chapter establishes a transnational relationship between a number of historical crime novels set during periods of military rule and dictatorship in Italy, Spain, Argentina and Japan in the works of Maurizio de Giovanni, Agustí Vehí, Eduardo Sacheri and Jung-Myung Lee. Rather than exploring these novels within the exclusive national context in which they were produced, and thereby reinforcing national distinctiveness as an interpretative framework, I argue that when we read these novels outside their national tradition, we can see the emergence of a shared, international concept of justice that provides the ideological framework in which issues like justice, moral agency, victimhood and culpability within the specific dictatorial regimes can be understood. In worlding these novels, I argue that we are able to recognise the profound connections between the local and the global that allows for the emergence of a global consciousness.
