K – Keenest Killer – Literary Smackdown #AtoZChallenge 2016
Welcome to K day in our Literary Smackdown. The AtoZChallenge is well on its way now and we hope you are enjoying it all. Today we have two very skillful gentlemen to choose between, unfortunately they have both chosen to use their talents to kill people. We would like you to pick the Keenest Killer.
A serial killer with morals, Dexter is a man who uses his craft carefully. Created by Jeff Lindsay in his Dexter series, the character has since made it on to the small screen in his own series. Taught ethics by his adoptive father Harry, Dexter uses this code to bring to his justice murderers who have evaded the full extent of the law. He works for the Miami-Metro police department as a blood splatter analyst and only kills those where he has conclusive evidence they are guilty of murder. He’s twisted, but channels it in a productive way if you believe murderers should not get away on a technicality. Is he worth your vote?
- Hannibal Lecter
Possibly one of the most famous serial killers to grace the page and screen, Dr Hannibal Lecter is a forensic psychiatrist with an added side of cannibalistic serial killer. In The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris, Lecter is already a prisoner, but his expertise is required by the FBI to help find the serial killer Buffalo Bill. In the books and films his psychoses can be traced to his childhood in Lithuania during the war. In the television series he is slightly different, described as ‘Satan – this fallen angel enamoured with mankind’. He can be found on he page, on the big screen and on the small screen, is he worth your vote?
