Don't know about the book (have it but haven't read it), but the movie's noir due to its visual style. And the detective falling in love with a dead victim has become a mainstay, if not cliche, of the genre (along with the -- spoiler alert -- if its face was blown off, the corpse ain't who everyone thinks it is plot).
