Watch tip: Inside the Mind of a Con Artist on ZDFinfo

Inside the Mind of a Con Artist / Im Kopf der Hochstapler will premiere May 17 on ZDFinfo in Germany. The series is produced by Autentic & Topkapi Nonfiction for Curiosity, Bilibili, ZDFinfo & KRO-NCRV.

What it's about:
The crime science series unearths the human truth behind some of the most extraordinary fraud cases in recent history, by psychoanalysing the con artists themselves. We invite six of the most successful con artists of all time to a scientific institute where they are confronted with their crimes. Experts in the fields of forensic psychology, behavioural science, and neuroscience look into the minds of Christophe Rocancourt, Matthew Cox, Frederic Bourdin, Jan Lewandowski, Shaun Greenhalgh and Helmut Kiener, uncovering the unconscious meanings and motivations behind their actions.
