    криминал, криминальный мир, подпольщина

    for the sentense you need more context
    here is the literal translation
    so for our homework last night you wanted us to.
    Так для нашей домашней работы вчера вечером ты хотел, чтобы мы...
    Я так думаю.

    "the criminal underworld" - криминальный мир. It is persistent sentence.

    "so for our homework last night you wanted us to...?" - "Таким образом, в качестве домашней работы прошлым вечером Вы/ты хотели/хотел, чтобы мы".

    I'd vote for "преступный мир". To my mind that's far more frequent than any of the above proposed variants.
    Please correct my English
