Ok But What the Hell is Cosy Crime/Mystery?

On face value, it seems like a contradiction in terms

It’s a question I see come up occasionally in the Twitter writing community. There seems to be some confusion — mostly, how on Earth can mystery or crime ever been “cosy”? I mean, we don’t have hygge horror, or daft dystopia (hmm, or maybe we do if we look at some weird fi books that blend these genres).
