HBO Acquires Scandinavian Crime Drama ‘The Investigation’

Six-Episode Series to Begin Airing on Monday, February 1 at 10 p.m. ET on HBO

HBO has bought the linear and streaming rights to the six-part Scandinavian crime drama “The Investigation”, which comes from Miso Film, the Danish production company owned by Fremantle. “The Investigation” explores the case of the 2017 murder of Swedish journalist Kim Wall, who was killed after boarding a homemade submarine. The case was one of the most notorious in Denmark’s history and made international headlines after Wall’s body parts were found in different locations and the owner of the submarine Peter Madsen was charged and convicted of her murder.

The logline: The series follows Jens Møller (Søren Malling), the Head of Homicide, and his team in the pursuit of the truth. With the hope of being able to provide the prosecutor (Pilou Asbæk), solid evidence in order to create a convincing case and give the relatives the certainty they deserve, the team enlists the use of methodical, unusual and technical work tactics. The series was made in close cooperation with the real-life Jens Møller and Kim Wall’s parents, Ingrid and Joachim Wall.

“The Investigation” will debut on HBO on Monday February 1 at 10 p.m. ET and will stream via HBO Max.
