After seeing some conversations on Discord, I've started thinking about anarchist murder mysteries. Do they exist and what would/do they look like?
Like, in a conventional murder mystery, there's always police even if in Agatha Christie-style cozy mysteries, their presence can be minimal. The investigator is often a detective or works for the police, and the murderer gets handed over to the police at the end, with few exceptions.
Then there's the whole 'individual genius' thing.
'Elementary' also shows the slog work of trawling through papers and data, which is one of the reasons why I appreciate it so much. In the real world, whenever cops or whoever do spend a bit of time solving crimes, the slog work is vital.
Real-world Nazi-doxxers could be a model for anarchist murder mysteries. Some brilliant people among them, but it's a collective effort.
Anyway, no point speculating when I don't know what is out there. Does anyone know a good anarchist murder mystery?
