Danish series – The Investigation (Efterforskningen) – has released its first trailer.
It will adapt the emotional true-crime of the murder of Swedish journalist Kim Wall by Danish entrepreneur Peter Madsen.
Befitting such serious subject matter, it stars the cream of Scandinavian crime drama.
Søren Malling leads the cast as Jens Møller, the Head of Homicide for the Copenhagen Police, alongside Pilou Asbæk as the prosecutor Jakob Buch-Jepsen and Pernilla August and Rolf Lassgård as Kim Wall’s parents, Ingrid and Joachim Wall. Further cast includes Laura Christensen, Anders Juul, Henrik Birch, Hans Henrik Clemensen, Dulfi Al-Jabouri and Charlotte Munck.
The series focusses on the Copenhagen Police and Head of Homicide, Jens Møller’s investigation and follows the methodical, unusual and technical work that enabled them to solve the murder of 30-year-old Wall.
It’s being premiered in the Nordic territories on 28th September, and the BBC will show the series later in the year.
