Dagmar Overbye is one of the most notorious serial killers in Denmark’s history as she targeted babies and seemingly had no motivation for her crimes. Overbye was convicted of nine murders, as there was insufficient proof of the others. Her lawyer based the case on Overbye being abused herself as a baby, but that did not impress the judge. She became one of the three women sentenced to death in Denmark in the 20th century, but she – like the other two – was reprieved. (Released 26.09.2022)
