The miniseries develops from the figure of a real murderer, who even intrigued the justice of the time with the way his crimes happened. Frenchman Charles Sobhraj committed a veritable wave of atrocities in Thailand, Nepal and India between 1975 and 1976.
According to reports at the time, the criminal became Interpol’s most wanted man. He was also well known by the nickname Bikini Killer, because of the way his victims were found. After spending nearly two decades in prison in India, he was sentenced in Nepal to life in prison.
Apparently, all these developments can be followed through the Netflix miniseries.
