Why Do I Read Crime?

Today on Murderati, Zoƫ Sharp surveys the reasons we read crime fiction.

I commented:

All the reasons you mention are true for me to some degree. At the moment, I find I'm reading crime to make some sense of the seemingly senseless. I don't mean for stories of good conquering evil or chaos being restored to order, but for a more muted, personal coming-to-grips. I think writing, and reading in turn, allows us to see events and experiences in a different light, to get perspective.
