And diamorphine is actually Heroin, so why not use the name that everyone knows? Heroin might be a brand name, but it is a bit like the word hoover. The brand name has become synonymous with the product.

If you'd used the word Heroin instead of diamorphine, it alters the severity of the story, and thus, the impact of the crime. It comes across as less of an issue, compared to what has actually taken place.
