What Is The Plot of Des?
Des follows the life and crimes of Dennis Nilsen. Also known as the "Kindly Killer", Nilsen was a Scottish civil servant who was charged with the murder of many young boys and young men at his home between 1978 to 1983.
Nilsen was only caught after Detective Chief Inspector Peter Jay was called to an apartment complex on February 9 1983, after he received reports that suspicious material was blocking the drains. From there, Nilsen was arrested and charged with six counts of murder and two attempted murders.
Preferring to be called 'Des', the story follows the reasoning behind Nilsen's crimes rather than discovering who the murder is. Meaning that if you prefer to hear about the psychology behind serial killers then Des is for you.
