Summary/Abstract: The article compares the two sources of crime fiction: English and French. They are analyzed on the basis of their attitude to one of the main features of the criminal literature: the problematization of the reader’s identification and, hence, the aesthetic impact of the text. It turns out that the English tradition follows more strictly this criterion, while the French one is more hesitant.
