Description:

Piet Byleveld is regarded as South Africa's most successful police detective, with a 99% success rate during his career that spanned almost forty years until his retirement in July 2010. While his breakthrough in the Leigh Matthews murder case gave him star status among white South Africans, it was Piet's investigations into serial killings that earned him love and respect among black South Africans. Letters to the media and comments on the internet voiced a plea similar to those that were emblazoned on banners held aloft during protest marches in townships: We want Piet! In a crime-ridden society, Piet became a symbol of honest, effective law enforcement. He was even the inspiration for the character Captain Pote du Toit in Eifsondes, played by Ian Roberts. The longest-serving member of the notorious Brixton Murder and Robbety Unit, Piet was also the only remaining member of the former unit who was still in the police service by the time he retired. During the apartheid years, his close working relationship with his black colleagues gave him the nickname "Piet Kaffir". Byleveld: Dossier of a Serial Sleuth is not a biography; rather, the focus is on Piet's years as a detective and the cases he has been involved in.
