It's been 17 years since notorious cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer was brutally murdered in a Wisconsin prison ... and now, the man who beat him to death is shopping a tell-all book about the killing.

TMZ has learned ... a rep for Christopher Scarver has reached out to high power book publishers ... claiming the 42-year-old wants to explain why he felt compelled to bludgeon Dahmer to death with a broomstick in 1994.

Sources say ... Scarver -- who's currently serving multiple life sentences for multiple murders -- wants to reveal all sorts of details surrounding the Dahmer killing ... including Dahmer's last words.

We're told Scarver plans to reveal the "sick, sadistic mind games and practical jokes" Dahmer played on prison officials and other prisoners during his time in the pokey.

Sources say ... Scarver also wants to share the life lessons he's learned since the killing.

No word if anyone will bite.

I dont know about reading a book about it. But it would be an interesting segment if he was interviewed on 20/20 or something like that.

I thought the son of Sam law prevented a person from profiting from their crime.

I think it's no legal to profit from a killing. Not only that, but just because this guy got rid of one killer doesn't make him a stand up citizen, he's a killer too.. not just of dahmner, but he was there for killing other people. If anyone is dumb enough to do this, they are the lowest form. Besides, there is no way to confirm ANYTHING that this guy says is true besides the fact that he killed Dahmner. All the other stuff is just his word against a dead guys.

I don't think it takes a book to explain the reason for that

This is SICK! Why would I buy this thug's book? He was in prison for murder himself before killing Dahmer for the murder of Steve Lohman. He also murdered another inmate in this event,Jesse Anderson whom was also in for murder. He is a schizophrenic (diagnosed) and a sick piece of garbage! Jeffrey Dahmer was a sick man, obviously! His crime were UNTHINKABLE! But unlike most serial killers, he actually tried to allow others to study him and was remorseful for his crimes. And he paid with HIS life for what he did while in prison. This is not for a "better understanding." It is about money! He wants to make money off of the murder of someone infamous. Anyone that would want to buy this book is just as sick if not more then Jeffrey Dahmer was!

"wants to reveal all sorts of details surrounding the Dahmer killing ... including Dahmer's last words."
