Connections to Other Genres:
Mystery: Can be about really anything related to a puzzling crime. It is a broadest version of detective fiction where there doesn't have to be a detective in it, but there can be. Also it can have to do with sports or pretty much anything else where as detective fiction has to do with a crime that has a culprit that has to be found.
Crime Fiction: Is about fictionalized crimes, their detection, criminals and their motives. This is the one above detective fiction because it focuses more on the crimes that are committed in the books than the actual detective and their work.
