I think the body count your talking about would only really work in a comedy.
You lose the readers sympathy when you're killing off characters like flies. Serial doesn't have to mean 10/20 deaths. Take 4 or 5 kills and make them very unique (if your considering a serious serial killer novel).

Let the dective/media connect him to previous murders if you must but don't describe too many in the present timeline.
