Both book and film are w Murder by numbers, quite literally. Martinez mixes a nice share of mathematics, Wittgensteinian philosophy and even some mythology to make a very different tale of murder.

Joining serious mathematics with murder made this novel unique in my experience. One could argue the author was being revolutionary by creating a new type of murder story.

This may sound worse than I intend it to. The author provided some clues, but even then I was shocked to read the solution. Denying the reader the satisfaction of a villain being punished or any possible attachment to the characters. However, the extensive mathematical explanations imperdeptibles away from enjoying the book and the way Martinez explains it, makes it very hard for one to understand it.

Would I ever reread this? It appears that the serial killer can be stopped only if somebody can decode the next symbol in the sequence. I am irritated that this book, which takes nearly the same idea, with the same twist, does not in any way allude to or acknowledge, the brilliant Agatha Christie.

I could forgive it due to the further books if it were a series. However a famous logician, Arthur Seldom, and author of a book on the mathematics of serial killers, shares the appearance of a strange note in his mailbox.


Moreover, it seems as if the author was unable to piece together evidence to prove the suspects guilt or innocence. The book explains how difficult it can be to solve mathematics in a cryptic form. 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 mathematic My actual rating for The Oxford Murders is probably about 3. It was a good book, well written, with the math and forensics well explained, but the whole sense that I knew what was coming because I’d read Christie’s book was a little off putting.

Half-guessed the twist at the end, but that didn’t spoil it for me a jot. All he can conjecture is that it might relate to his latest book, an unexpected bestseller about serial killers and the parallels between investigations into their crimes and certain mathematical theorems. That would be ok if there were some positives offsetting it. I like watching Inspector Morse and Inspector Lewis.

He should be reading real accounts.

Though as a not so-much-experienced-in-math, I would have wanted some explanations at the end of the book, maybe crimebes notes, made by the author. And it does have Oxford as a setting, after all. Murder by numbers, quite literally. But can this apply to murder? The story was arresting and the ending a surprise. This book lacks content that most murder mysteries have, the concepts explained make crienes readers that are not familiar with them, feel left out during chapter long math lectures, and finally, the ending is not well thought out.

I give the novel a qualified recommendation. Martinez mixes a nice share of mathematics, Wittgensteinian philosophy and even some This novel has more red herrings than a communist fish market. Honestly, they really wouldn’t. There were too many coincidences, and life’s not that coincidental.


I must confess that math and puzzles of logic are a foreign language to me so many of the discussions in this book were beyond me.

Not unless I was planning on cutting off the friendship. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. La muerte lenta de Luciana B, The Blood Doctor is somewhat like that but it is still a good read because of the characters.

After explaining a wide variety of foreign concepts, they are not connected to the conclusion of the story and seem unnecessary at the end. For the film, see The Oxford Murders film. I tried to do it in my head but kept slipping back into rather banal english.

And boy, did I mind. Almost all the characters, except for the detective, are either professional or amateur mathematicians–including the first victim.
