H2H 3. 118. Dennis Nilsen. The Kindly Killer.

In 1983, a Scot living in London tells police that he’s a murderer. Something they already knew because of the smell wafting from his top floor apartment. The question was, how? And why? What police didn’t expect was how many. To the people who knew him, he was a nice guy—a champion of the downtrodden. But the reality was much different. This is the story of a twisted serial killer who brought men to his flat, killed them, and kept their corpses for weeks—sometimes months. This is Dennis Nilsen. The Kindly Killer.
