A six-part series is being made about one of the most dramatic crimes of the last 10 years

This is going to be a riveting watch.

Tobias Lindholm, the director behind the 2016 Oscar-nominated drama A War, will be heading up a new project that will see one of the most dramatic and shocking crimes of recent years brought to the screen.

Earlier this year, inventor Peter Madsen was convicted of murdering journalist Kim Wall after she came aboard his submarine to interview him. Madsen then sank his submarine in an attempt to evade justice.

Madsen, who is famous in Denmark for his inventions, originally denied the crime — but was sentenced to life in prison in April 2018.

Now, a six part documentary is being made about the crime. According to Deadline, "the six-part series centers on the Copenhagen Police and its Head of Homicide, Jens Møller’s investigation and follows the methodical, unusual and technical work that enabled them to solve Wall’s murder".

The project is as-yet unnamed with no release date set.

Kim's parents Ingrid and Joachim Wall say, “We decided early on that Kim’s fate should not be forgotten and we developed a close relationship with Jens Møller over the course of the case. Our conversations with both Jens and Tobias have caused us to trust that the story of how Kim’s murder was solved will be told from the right perspective and with respect for all who knew and loved Kim.”
