About the Author

Janwillem van de Wetering (1931-2008) was born and raised in Rotterdam, but lived most recently in Surry, Maine. He served as a member of the Amsterdam Special Constabulary and was once a Zen Buddhist monk. He is renowned for his detective fiction, including Outsider in Amsterdam, The Corpse on the Dike, The Japanese Corpse, The Maine Massacre, which garnered him the Grand Prix de Litterature Policiere, and ten other books in the Amsterdam Cops series.


Praise for The Mind-Murders

"[Van de Wetering's] odd-angled novels more and more resemble the sort of thing Simenon might have done if Albert Camus or Kobo Abe had sublet his skull. They make a sinister music as they seek the true law. They are quite wonderful, and The Mind Murders . . . [is] one of his best."
--John Leonard, The New York Times "Original, subtle, sophisticated and graceful."
--Los Angeles Times "A superlative mystery writer."
--TIME "Well worth adding to your collection . . . [Van de Wetering's] impish wit, serene storytelling and serene mind have been praised on both sides of the Atlantic."
--The Chicago Tribune

"[A] unique atmospheric mix of police procedure, quirky characters, and Zen outlook."
--The Boston Globe

--Men's Journal "What atmosphere! Elegant! Satisfying!"

"What makes this series so engaging is that the policemen are as quirky and complicated as the criminals."
--The Washington Post
