Nerve gas and radioactive substances, toxins and thallium, secret agents and terrorists. Ulf Ellervik digs into the art of poison killing. It turns out to be more difficult than you might think, and the approaches are many and ingenious. How about remodeled umbrellas or poisoned cigars? Why not some radioactive tea or a shower of deadly perfume?
Tales of true crime in the spirit of science and a deep dive into the macabre history of political poisoning. Ulf Ellervik addresses known and unknown cases and gives a description rich in cultural references, gripping life stories and… chemistry.
