BRING TRUTH TO THE SURFACE.
When Tobias Lindholm took on one of Denmark’s most sensational murder cases in recent years, inventor Peter Madsen’s killing of the journalist Kim Wall, committed inside his privately built submarine, he had an approach similar to his movies A Hijacking (2012) and A War (2015) – fact-based, down-to-earth, empathetic, carefully avoiding grandiose dramatic effects. This miniseries focuses solely on the investigation and Wall’s parents, never once showing (or even naming) Madsen. That’s quite a feat; slow, but still gripping and enlightening.
