Charles Sobhraj, aka The Serpent, was one of the worst serial killers of the 1970s. Targeting tourists on 'The Hippy Trail' he built a reputation as a conman and killer. This series delivers an unprecedented portrait of one of Asia’s most notorious criminals through a series of unpublished conversations discreetly recorded from the culprit’s jail cell, testimonies of those who know him best – including ex-girlfriends - along with archives and manuscripts written by Charles Sobhraj himself.
