The Serpent and Herman Knippenberg

(Warning: this post discusses the details of a real-life crime, as such it contains details of murder, drugging, and a serial killer)

I recently finished watching the eight-part BBC series The Serpent.

(I think in the US it’s on Netflix? Not sure.)

Starring Jenna Coleman, Billy Howle, and Tahar Rahim, The Serpent is a drama based on the real story of a serial killer preying on tourists in a variety of countries along the Asian hippie-trail during the 1970s.
