Jeff Lindsay, creator of serial killer Dexter, talking at Marseille’s Semaine Noire book festival, said,
Some believe that Dexter cares about justice. Dexter doesn’t care about justice, he cares about killing. He’s attractive because he’s dangerous. It’s a mistake to think that Dexter is nice. He’s not nice – people romanticise him. He’s a serial killer. We like him because he has a code that make us feel better about him.”
