Is your criminal a hero?

Steve McQueenJohn Truby says the ‘Criminal as Hero’ sub-genre of the major Crime genre asks these 3 questions:

1. What is crime?

2. Is society’s view of crime too strict ?

3. In what way is the individual greater than the mass?

– and if he is greater should he be allowed to do what other people are not allowed to do?

–  should the social rules be applied to somebody who is exceptional?
