    He's a vampire, so I'm guessing he's killed before.

    And voodoo to contact evil spirits. I'm not sure if that is maths though, perhaps some graduate could enlgihten me as to whether voodoo is a branch of maths.

    Unfortunately real serial killers are less exciting than fictional ones. In the words of Charlie Brooker:

    "Real serial killers are genuinely frightening. You wouldn't catch me on a log flume ride with John Reginald Christie. No siree. But fictional serial killers are usually more pretentious than frightening, perpetually quoting Milton or arranging their victims in poses designed to evoke the martyrdom of St Sebastian. What are you, a cold-blooded murderer or the controller of Radio 3? Proper maniacs are too disturbed to complete a Sudoku, let alone conduct an intellectual game of cat-and-mouse with an existentially minded detective. Put your cryptic crossword down and just strangle people. Or don't bother."

    Haha, I was going to buy that book the other day. Have you read it? If so, is it any good?

    It was OK; not great, not terrible. The 'hook' is quite clever, I thought.

    don't forget poor M. Galois... he tried to shoot someone but missed & was shot himself. What a terrible waste.
