"The explanation for the crime is simple; it is that the sun was burning Meursault's eyes, branding his forehead, and distorting his vision. As for the reason why he shot the Arab, there simply is none. Meursault's story reminds us that there need not be a reason for everything. Hence Camus's scrupulous avoidance of causal connections in Meursault's vocabulary." - Brian Masters (Camus: A Study, 1974)
