AS SEEN IN:
Dexter Morgan (né Moser) is a fictional character in a series of novels by Jeff Lindsay, including "Darkly Dreaming Dexter" (2004), "Dearly Devoted Dexter" (2005), "Dexter in the Dark" (2007), "Dexter by Design" (2009), "Dexter Is Delicious" (2010) and "Double Dexter" (2011). In 2006, the first novel was adapted into the Showtime TV series 'Dexter' and its companion web series 'Dexter: Early Cuts'.
In both the novels and the TV series, Dexter is a forensic blood spatter analyst who works for the fictitious Miami-Metro Police Department; in his spare time, he is a serial killer who preys on other murderers who have escaped the justice system. He follows an elaborate code of ethics and procedures taught to him in childhood by his foster father, Harry Morgan (which he refers to as "The Code" or "The Code of Harry"), which hinges on two principles: Dexter can only kill people after finding evidence that they are guilty of murder, and he must dispose of all evidence so he never gets caught.
