Prostitute murderers, senders of letter bombs, child abusers – many criminals have already allowed Norbert Nedopil to look deep into their souls. A fundamental interest in the human psyche has prompted Germany's best known forensic psychiatrist to find out more. What factors, for example, make a crime take place?
