Crímenes imperceptibles by Guillermo Martínez
This book combines logic, philosophy and criminal law. The combination of math and mystery works very well in this interesting and intriguing novel. Short sections of narrative action, with just enough occasional romance and a little sex, are interspersed like small oases in a desert of cognition. However a famous logician, Arthur Seldom, and author of a book on the mathematics of serial killers, shares the imperceptiblew of a strange I found this short mystery fascinating due to its cerebral nature.
It is left to Seldom and a postgraduate mathematics student to work out the key to the series of symbols before the killer strikes again. But that’s OK because I like novels that throws you off and keeps you guessing. Can you tell me what the next symbol is, without searching the Net?
It may be the most fun book I ever read that involved mathematics professors, and we all know imperceptbiles professors can be real party animals This novel has more red herrings than a communist fish market. The book read very flat. And the characters either weren’t very interesting or were left unexplored. View all 3 comments.

The best thing is that the book was short and enables me to move on to my next book very quickly. I know that there is a film adaptation with Elijah Wood and John Hurt.
It would have been even better if the translator had written it with an accent. And it does have Oxford as a setting, after all.
But I would describe this book as a novel written by a mathematician for mathematicians. When an Argentine math student at Oxford presumedly based on the author’s own experience discovers the smothered body of his landlady, conventional wisdom points to a family member with the most prosaic of motives.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. In this thriller, mathematical symbols are the key to a mysterious sequence of murders. Mathematicians or logisticians might enjoy this book. One for the Charity Shop! But I confess, it was interesting to search more info in the Net for further knowledge.
La muerte lenta de Luciana B, Lists with This Book. Views Read Edit View history. The book touches on a lot of concepts which are very capable of confusing a fellow reader and take away from the story. Even if some of the herrings are obvious, there are always a few that swim by when you are not expecting them. Return to Book Page. It should let the reader foreshadow, while still keeping a certain mystery.
The worst was that I crimdnes the killer almost immediately and, in spite of the twists which ended up being rather silly. That would be ok if there were some positives offsetting it. Also, it should give the reader a chance to be ahead of the detective in solving the mystery, or at least be caught up with him. I enjoyed the main plot but there was too much extraneous maths for me.
I didn’t like this book. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Each new death that occurs is accompanied by a different mathematical shape, starting with a circle.
After explaining a wide variety of foreign concepts, they are not connected to the conclusion of the story and seem unnecessary at the end.
And a significant percentage of the pages of the novel consist not of story, but of one mathematician talking to another mathematician about some other mathematician or about some theory of mathematics.
Though as a not so-much-experienced-in-math, I would have wanted some explanations at the end of the book, maybe some notes, made by the author. All he can conjecture is that it might relate to his latest crimenfs, an unexpected bestseller about serial killers and the parallels between investigations into their crimes and certain mathematical theorems. The Blood Doctor is somewhat like that but it is still a good read because of the characters.
