Killers: Behind the Myth

Killer: Behind the Myth is a new documentary series that tells the surprising story of how some of Eastern Europe’s most horrific murderers were eventually brought to justice. It’s a story of shocking crimes and bizarrely simple blunders that takes the audience behind the worn-out stereotype of the criminal mastermind to reveal the very ordinary men who commit the most inhuman crimes.

Through remarkable archive and exclusive interviews we follow the murderers’ stories from childhood to prison cell. We track their lives through the people who knew them best, but rather than painting a picture of a calculating genius we reveal the seemingly mundane human beings whose crimes would go onto become infamous. Each episode will explore the mistakes that led to their arrest, demystifying some of history’s most appalling criminals and revealing the truth behind their crimes and capture.
