How do you identify with a murderer?
Writer Peter Middendorp’s latest novel Jij bent van mij (You’re mine), published in 2018, is based on the murder of Marianne Vaatstra. ‘Of course it’s an awful book (...) and I’m glad it’s finally finished’, Middendorp told Dutch daily Dagblad van het Noorden. In a panel discussion with Dr Liesbeth Korthals Altes, professor of Literary Studies (University of Groningen) and Dr Marleen Nagtegaal, forensic psychologist and researcher at the WODC, Middendorp will explain how the book was written. It provides a disturbing insight into the brain of a criminal.
