I'm currently making my way through the show Banshee, which is about a diamond thief who's been in jail for years and wants to reunite with his accomplice (who never went to prison for the theft) when he is released. Due to an unfortunate collision of circumstances, he winds up taking the identity of the new sheriff in town and tries to solve crime cases while going back to his own old criminal ways at the same time. There's a whole lot more going on in the show and it features a really broad scope of crimes/people, but is definitely something I recommend watching.

Other things of note that come to mind as recs are True Detective's first season and the visually stunning show Hannibal.

Both Dark Places and Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn (the lady that wrote Gone Girl) are really good

American Terror *not all about a shooting

Bullet Time *a Polish movie I watched on youtube YEARS ago but I enjoyed it

Serial Killers:
Summer of Sam (it's based around David Berkowitz but has other storyline)

Ok, i'm gonna go out on a limb here and recommend a bit of historical true crime... (this one is part fact, part fiction/legend, but based on a true event)

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

Seriously, my all time favorite movie. And it's a pretty infamous assassination. SO GOOD.
