    DescriptionInternational Bestseller Chief Inspector Van Veeteren is forced to unlock the secrets of a nearly perfect murder in this taut psychological thriller.On a rainy April day, a body--or what is left of it--is found by a young girl. Wrapped in a blanket with no hands, feet, or head, it signals the work of a brutal, methodical killer. The victim, Leopold Verhaven, was a track star before he was convicted for killing two of his ex-lovers. He consistently proclaimed his innocence, however, and was killed on the day of his return to society. This latest murder is more than a little perplexing and Chief Inspector Van Veeteren is determined to discover the truth, even if it means taking the law into his own hands.

    Review quote
    "The mystery of a headless corpse . . . brings insight to the puzzle of human behavior." --"The New York Times Book Review ""Foreboding. . . . A number of crime writers try to explore morality and motivation. . . . Nesser achieves more than most." --"Deseret News ""Every bit enjoyably creepy as his previous offering." --"Entertainment World ""Mystery fans should rejoice." --"Richmond Times-Dispatch"
