There are several, see http://www.keyghost.com/ and
http://www.amecisco.com/hkstandalone.htm for examples. These are too
obvious, and the police most likely will put the keylogger inside the
keyboard or inside the case of the computer.

I have my computer on the floor, and can easily see all sides without
turning it. Mounting a small mirror behind the computer might be a good
solution to this problem for some.

I choose to live alone (for security reasons) so what I worry most about
are keyloggers and microphones. Here in Finland the police have a special
group investigating us (animal rights activists), and we have caught one
infiltrator, so considering this I don't think that it's a sign of
paranoia for me to occasionally check for keyloggers.
