Søren Malling, Pilou Asbæk, Pernilla August and Rolf Lassgård are four of the well-known actors who will be participating in the series "The Investigation" which will premiere in SVT 2020.

Pernilla August and Rolf Lassgård play Kim Wall's parents Ingrid and Joachim Wall.

The dramatization, produced by Miso Film in co-production with Outline Film for TV2 Denmark, SVT and Viaplay, has been created in collaboration with the journalist's parents and is based on investigative leader Jens Moller's work on the case.

Danish director

The Danish director and screenwriter Tobias Lindholm will both direct and write the six parts of the series. Lindholm says that he has taken on the task with great humility.

"It means a great responsibility when choosing to tell about real-life violent events," he says.

SVT, which has purchased the show rights to the series, tells the magazine that Lindholm has written a very strong material.

"The fact that the Wall family is involved tells us a bit about what kind of history we can share," says SVT program manager Anna Croneman.

Killed by Peter Madsen

Kim Wall was a Swedish freelance journalist, born in 1987 in the Trelleborg area. Wall worked for several international newspapers and she reported from, for example, Sri Lanka and on tourism in earthquake-hit Haiti.

The journalist was found dead in August 2017. Danish submarine builder Peter Madsen was sentenced by the Copenhagen Village (district court) to life imprisonment for murder. The penalty was appealed to the national court (court of law), which determined the life sentence.
