Thomas Müller is an (or probably the) Austrian criminal psychologist and crime scene analyst (No, he’s not a profiler. Never call him that). Bestie Mensch (translates to The Human Beast) is his first book. Unfortunately, it’s not available in English.

The Human Beast is a non-fiction book and doesn’t have a plot per se. It describes Müller’s way from a “normal police-man” to his education as a crime scene analyst in Austria and the US. It features snippets of interviews he’s had with some killers and/or rapists and describes some crimes in pretty gruesome details, while showing us his motivations and reasonings and the way he proceeds when he analyses a crime scene.

It’s a short book and a quick read. Müller repeats himself often, but that’s always to drive home a point. It might not be for the faint of heart as he continuously cites details in a rather clinical language about certain crimes. But it’s fascinating stuff and provides a very particular insight.
