The election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States provides the cultural critic in general, and the cultural critic of crime narratives in particular, with a valuable opportunity.

I will use the Age of Trump as a lens to examine a series of related issues about what televisual, filmic, and written narratives of crime from a variety of geographical and geopolitical spaces can do, should do, and perhaps are uniquely qualified to do, in a situation where the taken-for-granted ground of liberal democracy is being eroded in front of our eyes.
