What a suspensful book! I haven't read a book featuring a serial killer in ages and this book whet my appetite for more such novels.

"The Sculptor" of the title, re-shapes his poor victims to make them look like Michelangelo sculptures and then exhibits them. He's clever, methodic and on a mission, and of course he is a troubled fella, if you could characterize an Arnold Schwarzenegger-physique-type of a serial killer like that.

I won't disclose the gory and hideous details, but I really liked how his own story was woven into the present. Dr. Hildebrant's character did not persuade me that much. Nor, did I like the clichéd ending(?), but I really like everything in between, that is, art-history lessons and equal amounts of gore. Hell yeah!
