THE CODE OF EVIL

Forensic psychiatrist Reinhard Haller has spent thousands of hours with dangerous criminals. He has learnt how sadism and excessive violence incomprehensible to the »normal« mind occur and why they become a horrific reality. Haller is able to explore and survey the depths of evil like no other.

Where does evil originate, where does it reside, where, when and why is it triggered and erupts in a disastrous explosion of violence and sadism? Whether it’s a serious crime planned long beforehand and with great meticulousness or a sudden explosion of pent-up aggression—Reinhard Haller has insights into the dark areas of the psyches of offenders that only few others have been granted. He illuminates them and brings the anatomy of evil to light.
