Karol Kot created a suffocating atmosphere of fear in Kraków in the 1960s. No one suspected a young, clean-shaven boy fresh out of high school to be the prowling beast. Before his 21st birthday, Kot was guilty of two murders, ten attempted murders and four instances of arson. After stabbing his victims, he licked the blood off the knife’s blade, earning him the moniker of The Vampire of Kraków. Psychologists deemed his criminal mind to be the sort that only emerges once in a couple of million.
