"You may be wrong, there, Blore. Many homicidal lunatics are very quiet, unassuming people. Delightful fellows."
Blore said: "I don't feel this one is going to be of that kind."

And he's right, because the murderer is One Of Us -- one of the ten anxious and accused individuals trapped on the island -- and none of them are very likable. Although they vary in degree of culpability for the crimes of which their unknown tormentor convicts them, they are all guilty of something, even if only being crappy human beings.
