Portrayed By: Costas Mandylor
First Appearance: Saw III

Detective Mark Hoffman is a fictional character in the Saw franchise. Mark is a long-serving police officer for the Metropolitian Police Department, as well as the first accomplice, and subsequently the successor of the Jigsaw Killer, John Kramer. Like his mentor and partner, he designs death traps that, for survivors, give them reason to appreciate their lives. There are a few major differences however. Unlike Amanda Young, most of his traps give the victims the chance to escape. However, he has no emotion towards his victims, and in general, brandishes a very monotone personality.


Hoffman is a corrupt detective who is hidden from his dirty work and blames Agent Strahm until Saw VI where an audio tape from one of the victim's instructions reveals he was the one who recorded it. He immediately kills Erickson and profoundly stabs Agent Perez until she dies. Since his encounter with John Kramer, Hoffman has helped Kramer with all his murders. This is revealed in Saw VI and Saw 3D.
