Interactive Map of Murder Rates Around the World

Not a particularly fun topic, however, this interactive map of murder rates around the world uses a spinnable/clickable globe, graphs, and various widgets to get to the information you are interested in.  You can click on a country to see its murder count in a specific year, and for some countries the weapon most commonly used.  You can download the data too.
