The peculiarities and evolution of the macro-genre through the decades are pointed out in order to highlight continuities and discontinuities, as well as the interplay between native and imported literary models. Some considerations on the achievements of Chinese crime fiction and the potential of its internationalization are also made in the final section of the paper.
