* The most infamous serial killer in (former) USSR was probably [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrei_Chikatilo Andrei Chikatilo]] (popularized in the West by ''Film/CitizenX'' movie). Being completely unsuccessful in the attempts to catch him, the chief investigator in the case, Issa Kostoev, turned to one of the very few serial killers captured in USSR by that time - [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anatoly_Slivko Anatoly Slivko.]] Despite Slivko sincerely wishing to help (he was more of a [[SympatheticMurderer sympathetic kind]] of a serial killer, repeatedly atoning and being very guilt-bedridden), his guesses turned out to be almost all wrong. What makes it all more terrifying: Slivko was on the death row at the moment. Kostoev spoke to Slivko mere hours before his execution. Kostoev knew it. Slivko didn't.

* In the first books of the ''Literature/TheSaxonStories'', both Danes and Saxons use Uhtred to try and understand the other, since he has a unique insight into both cultures. This is mostly done by the Saxons, specifically Alfred, and more than once provides valuable insight into Danish strategy as he's arguably more Danish than some of the Danes. The 'killer' part comes in when you consider that Uhtred's a BloodKnight who frequently suggests that MurderIsTheBestSolution (though each time he suggests it, it ''would'' actually be solve a lot of problems), frequently states that he enjoys killing Priests and is generally regarded by the Saxons as a treacherous, dangerous and occasionally useful pagan psychopath whose only redeeming feature is his willingness to [[IGaveMyWord keep his word.]] [[SociopathicHero This, to be fair, is not the most inaccurate view in the world.]] It's sufficiently part of his character that even fairly on in their relationship, [[BlackComedy Alfred's immediate question after seeing that Uhtred's particularly cheerful one morning is if he's killed someone.]] The answer is no, but his girlfriend just has.

* In ''Literature/PrettyGirls'', Sam Carroll begins to visit the serial killer Ben Carver on death row for months because his missing daughter's police files listed him as having mentioned to have information on Julia. They wrote him off quickly, because his victims were all guys because of his sexual orientation, and figured he was lying. [[spoiler:He ''did'' know something and ended up giving Sam a clue contained in a Dr Seuss book.]]

* In ''Literature/PrettyGirls'', Sam Carroll visits the serial killer Ben Carver on death row because his missing daughter's police file listed him as having information on Julia. The police initially assumed he was lying because all of his other victims were men and consistent with his sexual orientation.
