The findings of a survey of all homicides in 1998 in the Netherlands are briefly presented. After describing characteristics of the incident, the offender, and the victim, multivariate relations between these characteristics are investigated. It appears that homicide cases are structured in an interpretable way in which a previous classification can be accommodated. The analysis, however, also indicates that homicide types do not constitute distinct groups but instead rank along a circular continuum. © 2006 Sage Publications.
