Hello everyone, After reading Dostojevski's Crime and Punishment a question has been "haunting" me. I have been asking whether this question was even relevant to the understanding of the book. But I am a criminology student and asking questions is often the first thing I do when reading books. I don't think anyone but Dostojevski could give me the right answer, but unfortunately he is not among us anymore.. So I am asking you, fellow readers, what your answer is to the question I am about to ask.
