Hell's Belle for sure this Norwegian born lady was a gruesome murderer who like most female killers was a poisoner but unlike the usual method of the gentler sex also decapitated and dismembered her victims Whether she did this solely so the bodies couldn't be identified or for her own enjoyment isn't known She started out marrying and murdering but then moved on to writing ads in Norwegian newspapers for men who could invest in her farm and perhaps become a couple Her letters are macabre in the extreme using feminine wiles to lure the lonely and somewhat trusting men to their deaths She also ran a sort of baby adoption scheme killing them off too when she could get money out of them through insurance or when they got in the wayThis reads like a mystery novel and is well researched and well written The author includes photos of Belle her children her victims and scenes from the murder farm When there is no photo to illustrate the scene the author includes illustrations which incorporate movement if you read them on a kindle I liked these very much
