    Here's an interesting article about Charles Sobhraj, an Indian/Vietnamese/Frenchman who killed at least 12 people, most of them backpackers, in Thailand, and Nepal, in the mid-1970ies. At the moment he's in jail in Nepal for the murder of a Canadian, and an American there in December 1975. There will be a BBC drama series about him, beginning on New Year's Day. The author of the article have met Sobhraj several times, both in Paris in 1997, and while he's in jail in Nepal.

    Cocky was my ex's aunt (he was born ca 10 years after the murder). The family is still traumatized by what happened and they are devastated that the case is being glamorized like this again.
    I can't watch the series. It's a reminder for me that families are victims too :(
