Setting a high bar for criminality

Danish crim Thomas Andy Sønderborg has set a pretty impressive benchmark, as following an 11m DKR heist (say £1.4m) he is now wanted in 186 countries, due to being on Interpol's watchlist. Even more impressive than the 'wanted in 14 counties' rap sheet read out to Eli Wallach's Tuco character in 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly'.

As a sidenote, Interpol was once presided over by one Reinhard Heydrich, its president at the time of his death. True story.

A little sniffing around discloses that there are not many places where Sønderborg can do a Ronald Biggs, so to speak, although scoffing from one of sundry islands in the western Pacific might be quite pleasant. The alternative to Samoa, Vanuatu and the like would be to hole up in Pyongyang, as the DPRK is the sole non-island non-member.
