The Investigation aims to provide a unique insight into the techniques used by the Copenhagen Homicide Unit led by Jens Møller (Søren Malling) in solving the murder of Kim Wall who disappeared after boarding a midget submarine to interview entrepreneur Peter Madsen.
The submarine sank the next day and Madsen was rescued, claiming that Wall had disembarked safely before the accident. However, over the next three months, Wall’s dismembered body parts began to appear around the area and Madsen was eventually charged with murder.
Director Tobias Lindholm said: “It is with great humility that I have gone into creating The Investigation. There is a great deal of responsibility in choosing to tell stories about violent events from the real world. That is why I am extremely grateful for the support I have received – including from some of Denmark’s and Sweden’s most talented actors.”
