Biography Sabine Vanacker's interests centre on writing and gender in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries (Jean Rhys, Gertrude Stein, Virginia Woolf, Dorothy Richardson, Jake Arnott, Leila Aboulela).

Her main research focus, however, is crime fiction, both classical and hardboiled, and topics such as feminist crime writing, the concept of genre and the phenomenon of series writing.

She has written on Dorothy L. Sayers and published on Agatha Christie, John Le Carré, P.D. James, Arthur Conan Doyle and Sara Paretsky.

She is currently preparing a monograph on P.D. James's classical detective series about an introspective, melancholic policeman, Adam Dalgliesh.
