Veikko  Bartel - Women Who Murdered


What makes women go over the line and become murderers?

Why do people kill? What makes them cross that line? Veikko Bartel has defended 46 women murderers in court thus far.

He tells here the four most spectacular, moving, and gruesome cases: the child murderer, the sadist, the husband murderer, the poisoner. He describes the background, the public outrage, and the life-story tragedies behind the crimes, and the cynicism and resignation of the judicial authorities. His book poses questions of justice, and with each case reveals that reality is more gripping than any crime thriller.

• An unconventional defence attorney and his most spectacular homicide cases

• Four spectacular women murderers, told from the perspective of the defence lawyer and founded on actual sources: from criminal records, diaries, judgments, forensic-psychiatric reports, and the author's memories.
