According to police, René Alphonse van den Berghe (age 70), better known as 'Erik the Belgian', was the most prolific art thief of the 20th century. The legendary art thief and forger was the bane of police forces across Europe.
Our documentary chronicles Erik's dramatic transformation as he tries to make up for the damage he wrought with his looting.
