“The humpback never sees the hump on his own back.”

Good Morning,


I am reading a book from Harlan Coben, Six Years, and I find this expression "“The humpback never sees the hump on his own back.”


the context is:
.....
“There is an old Greek saying,” he went on. “The humpback never sees the hump on his own back.”
I nodded. “Deep.”
“You’re making jokes, Jacob, but do you really think you’re blameless here?”...


I can't get the message very well.


Thanking in advance for the help.


Best regards,

    "People who point out a fault in others, are unaware that they have the same fault."

    The English expression would be ""The pot calls the kettle black."
