|Two superb dramas from the BBC.
Each utterly compelling in it's own way.
In one the offenders are front and centre all the way through.
In the other the offender is never even named
I don't recall hearing anything about The Serpent at the time but remember hearing about the crime in The Investigation.
That both are true stories make them even more compelling.
Can't recommend either highly enough.
Bangkok, 1975. Dutch diplomat Herman Knippenberg investigates the disappearance of a young couple who were last seen alive at the apartment of gem dealer Charles Sobhraj.
In August 2017, Jens Moller, chief of homicide in Copenhagen, learns of a missing Swedish journalist who has not returned from interviewing the designer of a homemade submarine.
Initial garbled reports indicate that she and the designer have returned to harbour, but this proves to be false, as only the designer is rescued before the submarine dramatically sinks. A search for the missing woman is immediately launched, but in order to detain the suspect, Moller, with the advice of prosecuting attorney Jakob Buch-Jepson, decides to charge the suspect with murder, despite the lack of a body.
