Vladimír Petrík, together with Kornel Földvári, was a pioneer of Slovak „detective studies“. This study deals with Slovak detective novels from the 1960s, which Petrík reflected on. It shows attempts to establish an original Slovak detective story and identifies its basic problems. In particular, they are not very well-managed genres, textual misconducts, specializing in the story of historical problems and historical events (Slovak National Uprising, emigration). The study points to the important form in which many detective novels have been published. It follows the interwar production in Czechoslovakia, which was unique in the 1960s.
