Why do we Enjoy Crime Fiction?

I have to admit that I’ve never really liked crime fiction or detective movies or TV shows. The primary reason for that is that I get scared extremely easily. I have never watched a horror movie in my life and I’m pretty sure I would still get jumpscared while watching Coraline. My parents would often watch crime TV-shows in the evening before going to sleep and I disliked it because I was terrified of having nightmares about it afterwards.
