Tonight on Netflix: A high-tension series from the director of Seven

How can we expect murderous madness when we don’t know how the mind of the most heinous criminals works? In 1979, Agent Holden Ford joined the FBI’s Behavioral Sciences Division, headed by veteran Agent Bill Tench. Together, they investigate a new type of killer: one who kills regularly and for no apparent reason.

Due to the lack of motive, it is difficult to identify and arrest these criminals. Two FBI agents devise revolutionary methods of interviewing incarcerated “serial killers” to build a database of their past, behaviors and motives, developing profiling techniques to catch the next killers. What follows is a true odyssey to get answers and change the page of history.

Adapted from the 1995 book, Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crimes UnitCreated by former Special Agents John Douglas and Mark Olshecker’s Joe Penhall, the series created quite a stir when it was released in October 2017. Like the previous book, it goes behind the scenes of some of the most famous criminal cases. Media coverage from the United States that the duo had to deal with.

Starring, among others, Jonathan Groff (Glee, Hamilton), Holt McCallan (Fight Club, Iron Claw) and Anna Torvey (Fringe, The Last Of Us), Mindhunter – literally “mind hunter” – really follows the creation of a federal bureau. (FBI) Behavioral Sciences Division in the late 1970s and early criminal profiling.

Fascinating, charming, addictive: many people quickly became addicted to the “true crime” series produced by, among others, Charlize Theron and David Fincher. Seven’s director notably acted as showrunner, directing most of the episodes while overseeing their script: suffice it to say, in terms of directing and writing, we’re on top. So when it was announced that the series would not get a third season, fans mobilized by starting a petition to save it, to no avail – for now? We can still hope…
