In noir lit. the implicit quest for good against evil is something constant, its existential essence, what is found behind the transgressions or the apparent follow up of a "clasic" moral code (product of a society).

************** Just a small point, Etienne, but I'm going to disagree with you on your implicit quest comment about noir. I'd say that what is implicit about good and evil in noir is not one against the other (although I don't rule it out), but good intertwined with evil. Near as I can tell, that's pretty darned close to a constant in noir.
