One of the great classics of world literature, Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment is the story of Raskolnikov, a young man who — unable to complete his studies — commits what he calls "justifiable murder." What ensues is as demanding and illuminating for the reader as it is for the main character. If you're familiar with Dante's Divine Comedy then reading this book is an even more enriching experience.
Recommended by Gin, Powells.com

This is one of the finest explorations of criminal psychology ever written. With enormous scope, Dostoyevsky dissects poverty, rationalization, the criminal mind, guilt, confession, religion, and redemption. He also provides an exquisite look at overwhelming paranoia. Crime and Punishment is a perfect, breathtaking masterpiece.

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Determined to overreach his humanity and assert his untrammelled individual will, Raskolnikov, and impoverished student living in the St. Petersburg of the Tsars, commits an act of murder and theft and sets into motion a story which, for its excruciating suspense, its atmospheric vividness, and its profundity of characterization and vision, is almost unequaled in the literatures of the world. The best known of Dostoevsky's masterpieces, Crime And Punishment can bear any amount of rereading without losing a drop of its power over our imagination.

Lindsay Waite, August 16, 2012 (view all comments by Lindsay Waite)
This is one of my all-time favorite books. I read it in the early 70s and re-read it recently. Before "Criminal Minds" and other current TV shows where there is an attempt to explore the nature of criminality, Dostoyevsky delved into the subject. He takes us in to the mind of Raskolnikov while he contemplates and tries to justify murder. After the killings, he behaves more and more like a guilty man, so when police officer Petrovich and Raskolnikov have encounters, he is a suspect. This is a fascinating psychological and political study of crime and, yes, punishment.
