Plot Synopsis

LAWLESS OCEANS is a one-hour series that follows renowned special investigator Karsten von Hoesslin, who is on a worldwide trail to piece together the truth behind mysterious murders from 2014. In that year, cell-phone footage was posted on YouTube from a mysterious address in Fiji, showing an unthinkable crime - four gruesome murders at sea. The crime footage went viral and made international headlines for its disturbingly callous brutality. Four men are filmed clinging to floating wreckage in the middle of the sea. Shots ring out. And the men are killed one by one. Perhaps just as chilling as the bloodshed are the onlookers who are heard laughing and shown smiling directly into the camera lens. Relentless in his pursuit for clues and angles, Karsten tracks down and interviews eye witnesses, material witnesses and families of the victims while he seeks the support of fellow experts to determine who committed these crimes, where and when they occurred and how and why this happened. Along the way, painting a dark, grim picture of our lawless oceans, Karsten encounters drug smuggling, people trafficking, illegal fishing, and piracy.
On Tuesday, February 7, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT, Nat Geo premiered the season finale of LAWLESS OCEANS. In the season ender, "The Endgame," Karsten encounters threats from mysterious sources on the hunt for Hoodlum.
