>Har du lagt mærke til, at i mange krimier figurerer der en original, en person (oftest mandlig), som på en eller anden måde er anderledes; et let offer som uundgåeligt havner på listen over mistænkte?

Her er et udvalg fra min 2009-liste:
Inger Frimansson, De nøgne kvinders ø: Udviklingshæmmede Adam

Camilla Läckberg, Stenhuggeren: Morgan, Aspergers syndrom

Karin Fossum, Se dig ikke tilbage: Raymond, mongol

Martin Edwards, The Coffin Trail: Barrie, Aspergers syndrom

Stieg Larssons trilogi; Lisbeth Salander med Asperger-træk.

Hvilke bøger har du læst, hvor en af de mistænkte er mentalt udviklingshæmmet?
Har du lagt mærke til, at Aspergers syndrom er ´kommet på mode´?

Odd Man out.
Have you noticed that in many crime stories there is an ´oddball´, a person (usually male) who is different somehow, an easy target who is almost inevitably one of the suspects?

From my own reading list of 2009:
Inger Frimansson, Island of the Naked Women: Adam, mentally retarded

Camilla Läckberg, The Stone Cutter: Morgan, Asperger´s Syndrome

Karin Fossum, Don´t Look Back: Raymond, Down´s Syndrome

Martin Edwards, The Coffin Trail: Barrie, Asperger´s Syndrome

Stieg Larsson´s trilogy: Lisbeth Salander, Asperger´s Syndrome

Which novels have you read where one of the suspects is mentally deficient somehow?
Have you noticed that Asperger´s Syndrome seems to be ´in´ these years?
