Crime and Punishment

So, a man kills and robs a rich woman. Then he can’t stand the guilt, so he turns himself in and goes to prison. But...where’s the money?

 

 

P.S. This cover with a cross, an arm, and an ax is phenomenal, isn't it? Judging by it, Raskolnikov killed the woman not for her money, but for the glory of god.

 

The description of Crime and Punishment on this Amazon page is great too: "Supreme masterpiece recounts in feverish, compelling tones the story of Raskolnikov, an impoverished student tormented by his own nihilism, and the struggle between good and evil. Believing that he is above the law, and convinced that humanitarian ends justify vile means, he brutally murders an old woman — a pawnbroker whom he regards as worthless."

 

The last time I checked, Raskolnikov wasn't tormented by his nihilism, but by his crushing poverty. Also, "humanitarian ends"? That's like a new definition of "humanitarian." :)
