The main suspect in the Madeleine McCann case is writing a book behind bars, it has been reported.

Paedophile Christian Brueckner is currently serving a seven-year jail term for raping a pensioner in Praia da Luz, the Portuguese resort from which Madeleine went missing in 2007.

Last month, the 45-year-old was made an “arguido” – which translates as “named suspect”, “formal suspect” or “person of interest” – by Portuguese authorities in the disappearance of little Madeleine.

Madeleine disappeared in May 2007 from a holiday apartment as her parents, from Rothley, Leicestershire, enjoyed a tapas meal nearby.

While Brueckner is now reportedly writing a “bestseller” behind bars at a high-security prison in Oldenburg, northwest Germany, the Olive Press reports.

The Spanish news outlet says a six-page letter was written to an American blogger by the suspect where he insists his book will be a “bestseller” better than any John Grisham novel.

In the alleged letter, Brueckner writes: “I know, all of the things I say are hard to believe. John Grisham couldn’t find a better story for a book.”

The letter was sent to Isabelle McFadden, a blogger who insists he is innocent, and Ben Thomspon, who is critical of the case on social media.

Brueckner also allegedly wrote he was the world’s most famous German, adding that “Hitler was Austrian”.

He also makes a chilling reference to John Dillinger, an American gangster during the Great Depression.

The alleged letter reads: “Ok, the book is not written yet, it still needs some work, but one day, when there comes out a book written by me with the true story I guess it will be a bestseller.

“A book, written by the most known German guy in the world. (Hitler was Austrian).”

In signing off, he finishes: “It would be very interesting to see articles from other countries about me. Am I the second Dillinger already?”

Brueckner was named an “arguido” by Portuguese authorities last month, in a move that is said to be linked to the 15th anniversary of Madeleine’s disappearance.

This has important legal ramifications, because whilst in Germany there is no time limit for a murder charge, in Portugal there is a strict 15-year limit.

He was first named in the summer of 2020 as a prime suspect by German police after mobile phone records placed him in Praia da Luz on the night Maddie vanished.

But despite further extensive inquiries he has never been charged.

Recently, the Portuguese authorities confirmed that they will continue their inquiries amid reports that Scotland Yard’s Operation Grange investigation will be wound up this autumn.

Brueckner also still faces charges for the rape of an Irish national in Portugal in 2004.
