London, April 1983. Dennis “Des” Nilsen is taken away by the police. He later confesses with extraordinary composure and surprising honesty to having killed no less than 15 young men in his flat since 1978. While the investigators desperately try to identify the victims, the case raises some uncomfortable questions: How was Des able to murder more than a dozen people without ever being caught? And why is the eerily calm Des so cooperative? The three-part British series attempts to get inside the mind of a psychopathic killer and to unravel a real case that shook the United Kingdom of its day to the core. Starring David Tennant, ZFF shows all three parts of this true-crime series.
