Survivor, genius, perfumer, killer: Jean-Baptiste Grenouille is abandoned on the filthy streets as a child, but grows up to discover. He has an extraordinary gift: a sense of smell more powerful than any other human's. Yet there is one odour he cannot capture. It is exquisite, magical: the scent of a young virgin. And to get it, he must kill.

What the papers say:
A fantastic tale of murder and twisted eroticism
