Mindhunter (Crime, Thriller)
From the genius minds of the thriller genre, including David Fincher, Mindhunter explores two fictional FBI agents in the 1970s, who are tasked with interviewing and profiling serial killers to solve open cases.

Douglas and Mark Olshaker, what is so captivating about the series is how strikingly similar the serial killers are to the real-life ones they are based on.
