Fishface | 11652 comments Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment moves Lacenaire's famous double murder to imperial Russia and makes the killer a starving student instead of a professional criminal. Literary scholars exclaim over how exactly Dostoyevsky matched up the fictional crime scene to the real one. There is one important detail he changed, however. Which one?

A) The victim was a seamstress, not a pawnbroker
B) The innocent-bystander victim was a transvestite, not an actual woman
C) There was a gang of killers, not just one guy with an axe
D) The real killer used a club, not an axe
E) Trick question! The correct answer is both A and D
F) Trick question! The real answer is both B and C

K.A. Krisko (kakrisko) | 1255 comments B) One of the victims was a transvestite.

Eliminating C), because I don't think two people can be counted as a 'gang', and D), because the murders were made using an awl and a hatchet, not a club. Chardon's mother may have been a seamstress, but I'm not sure about that, so I don't think it's A).

message 9: by Fishface (new)

Fishface | 11652 comments DING DING DING! F is absolutely CORRECT! The victims in this crime were Mme. Chardon and her son, who was a cross-dresser. And there were 3 co-conspirators in the robbery/murder, two of whom did the deed after one backed out.
