The brutal and heartbreaking murder of Swedish journalist really affected us here at The Killing Times, and now news reaches us that the investigation into her disappearance and death is to be made into a TV series.
Tobias Lindholm is to make it and for Swedish channels C More and TV4. “A murder case in which you are looking for a submarine – and where you have a perpetrator before finding a corpse – is by nature a spectacular story,” he says.
“I do not want to make a criminal series occupied by the perpetrator or the crime. Instead, I’m interested in the process and the people behind the solving of the crime. And the people who have to live on, despite the crime. It is, therefore, a deliberate decision that the perpetrator will in no case be featured in the series.”
Joining Lindholm on the project is Jens Møller, as Our Charlotte said, was the lead investigator on the case. So the hope is here is that it will be a sensitive, authentic, fact-heavy portrayal of events.
More news when we get it – this could be a must-watch.
