Synopsis

8 Episodes. Story of con-man and mass-murderer, Charles Sobhraj (Tahar Rahim), who is discovered and trailed by a young embassy official in mid-70's southeast Asia. Posing as a gem dealer, Charles Sobhraj and his girlfriend Marie-Andrée Leclerc (Jenna Coleman) travelled across Thailand, Nepal and India in 1975 and 1976, carrying out a spree of crimes on the Asian 'Hippie Trail,' becoming the chief suspects in a series of murders of young Western travelers. When Herman Knippenberg (Billy Howle), a junior diplomat at the Dutch Embassy in Bangkok, unwittingly walks into this intricate web of crime, he -- with the help of his spouse Angela (Ellie Bamber), police around the world and witnesses of Sobhraj's devious manipulation -- sets off an extraordinary chain of events that will see Sobhraj become Interpol's most wanted man, with arrest warrants in multiple continents.
