Raskolnikov, a conflicted former student, lives in a tiny, rented room in Saint Petersburg. He refuses all help, even from his friend Razumikhin, and devises a plan to murder and to rob an unpleasant elderly pawn broker and money lender, Alyona Ivanovna.
His motivation comes from the overwhelming sense that he is predetermined to kill the old woman by some power outside of himself.
An Audio play based on Dostoyevsky's highly acclaimed, psychologically challenging work. Narrated in Russian by Chulpan Khamatova, Sergey Chonishvili and others.
