Criminology as a science.
Why do human beings kill? Why are they considered the worst predators on the planet?
Crime has always fascinated us, perhaps because we find it difficult to understand how human beings can be capable of going beyond certain limits. The word “murder” yields more than 36 million results on Google, and “serial killer” more than 3 million. Criminology is more relevant than ever, both because of the prevalence of movies, TV series and novels on the subject and because of the real crimes that impact us almost daily.
The author -criminologist, lawyer and superb communicator- invites us to venture into the little known world of criminology, forensic science and criminal psychology. What are the methods professionals follow in criminal investigations? How is a complete criminological profile elaborated? What is the relationship between biology and criminal behavior? Who are the serial killers that make up this particular dark history of Spain? What causes some women to fall in love with the worst criminals? And perhaps the most important question and the one which puzzles, frightens and at the same time attracts all fans of criminology: why do human beings kill?
