This study examines Štěpán Kopřiva’s detective novel Rychlopalba (Rapid Fire) in terms of criticism of political correctness, which is a prominent motif in the author’s literary output. The kontext of the novel consists of of Czech action fantasy literature, with which Kopřiva has been associated over the long-term, snd the detective genres which he utilizes: the American hardboiled fiction (and its Czech equivalent) and Nordic detective stories, i.e. genres critically assessed and at the same time very much socially engaged. From this standpoint Rapid Fire is the product of cultural transfer, in which the socially sensitive subjects of Nordic detective stories are transformed into the form of a critique of political correctness as a substantial menace to civilization and an obstacle to a key element in detective literature – the crime investigation.
