A detective story or mystery story.

  • While Agatha Christie is still the first to spring to mind when thinking of the ultimate ‘whodunit’ books, detectives, murderers and victims have changed a lot since then; the breadth of crime, thrillers, detective and psychological novels out there, keeping us on tenterhooks until the last few pages, is vast.

Definition from Jezikoslovac:
krȉmić m
žarg. roman ili film kriminalističkog sadržaja

Example sentence(s):
  • Za malo koji književni žanr kao za krimić može se tako nedvosmisleno reći da je proizvod urbanog, građanskog života. Iako ovo nekom može zvučati čudno, krimić uspeva jedino tamo gde vladaju red i zakon. - Vreme  
  • Dečji krimić iz pera Ota Oltvanjija: „Kako sam postao detektiv“ - Laguna  
  • Beogradski pisac, publicista i novinar Nenad Novak Stefanović nedavno je u Laguni objavio svoj novi roman „Ubistvo u Kapetan Mišinoj“. NJegova prva knjiga u ovoj izdavačkoj kući je krimić, čija je radnja najvećim delom smeštena u Beogradu, između dva svetska rata, a „slučaj“ ga povezuje sa Carigradom i Jekaterinsburgom. - Danas
