Movies Based on Popular Crime Books

Ever since Kafka's The Trial was first published, we've been obsessed with crime thrillers and true crime stories that delve deep into the sickest heart of humanity, where flawed anti-heroes navigate a serpentine labyrinth that mirrors the chaos of the human soul. Also there are gunfights and car chases, sometimes.
These are some of the most memorable movies based on crime books.
