The Inspector

Character Analysis

The inspector makes a brief appearance in the first chapter of the novel to inform K. that he's been arrested, and that's it. K. thinks the inspector has a pretty pathetic job, given that the inspector doesn't do anything else, doesn't even question K. or inform K. of the charges. The novel seems to agree, as we never see the inspector again.
