The docu-series follows five criminals altogether, charting their crimes and recounting the mind-boggling attempts to bring them to rights, from police raids to phone tapping.

One case is that of Samantha Lewthwaite, a British woman known as the 'White Widow' because her husband was a 7/7 bomber Germaine Lindsay.

Lewthwaite is accused of causing the deaths of more than 400 people, thanks to her involvement in Somalia-based Islamic militant group, al-Shabaab.

Another criminal mastermind under the microscope is Rwandan businessman Félicien Kabuga, who is thought to have bankrolled and been heavily involved in the Rwandan genocide.
