The Making of A Serial KillerBook - 2013
In 1992, behind the barbed wire fence of a psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane, Thomas Quick confessed to the murder of an 11-year-old boy who had been missing for 12 years. Over the next nine years, Quick confessed to more than 30 unsolved murders, revealing he had maimed, raped, and eaten the remains of his victims. In the years that followed, a fearless investigative journalist called Hannes R̄åstam became obsessed with Quick's case. He studied the investigations in forensic detail. He scrutinized every interrogation, read and re-read the verdicts, watched the police reenactments, and tracked down the medical records and personal police logs--until finally he was faced with a horrifying uncertainty. In the spring of 2008, R̄stam traveled to where Thomas Quick was serving a life sentence. He had one question for Sweden's most abominable serial killer, and the answer turned out to be far more terrifying than the man himself.
