Die Bedeutung von "Conceit" in verschiedenen Ausdrücken und Sätzen

Q: Was bedeutet grisly conceit? ?
A: Grisly is an adjective that describes something as horrible, disgusting, or gruesome.

Conceit, in this context, refers to a comparison between two dissimilar things.

The "conceit" in this case would be the phrase "new murders" which is a "conceit" because murders cannot be new. Murder is only called "murder" because the action of "murdering" has been committed. Therefore, by the time a murder is discovered, it can no longer be "new."

The narrator uses the term "grisly" because murders are gruesome and because the terminology "new murders" is inherently flawed, but for lack of a better term, the narrator used the phrase "new murders" anyways.

Hopefully this answers your question. I understand why the sentence appears to be confusing.
