Crime

I was in a bookshop the other day and, walking around the shop, I could not fail to notice the amazing number of crime books in relation to other genres. I wonder why? Why are we so obsessed by crime? Is it true that what appalls and terrifies can also act as a magnet? Does reading crime books make us less terrified, less appalled? I would love to hear what you think.
