Is The Investigation based on a true story?

The Investigation, a new Scandinavian true-crime drama, is set to take the BBC by storm.

Tobias Lindholm, an Oscar-nominated writer and director is the mastermind behind the gritty drama.

He was a writer on the popular Danish political TV series Borgen and received worldwide acclaim after directing and writing the hit US series Mindhunter.

He also co-wrote the 2012 film The Hunt, which was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film at both the 2013 Golden Globes and the 2014 Academy Awards.

What is The Investigation about?

The Investigation explores the real-life murder case of Swedish journalist Kim Wall in 2017.

As she set out to interview entrepreneur Peter Madsen in August 2017, she was reported missing.

Following her disappearance, her body parts were found in different locations in the surrounding area and Madsen was later found guilty of her murder.

Where is Peter Madsen now?

After being convicted of Kim's murder, Madsen is now serving jail time at Herstedvester Prison on the outskirts of Copenhagen.

According to BBC News reports, in October 2020 Madsen managed to escape prison after reportedly threatening a guard with a "pistol-like object".

His efforts were in vain as he was quickly surrounded by police outside the prison.

When is The Investigation on BBC2?

The Investigation begins TONIGHT (February 22) at 9pm.

It is a six-part series that will air on BBC Two and will be available to stream on iPlayer.

The series proved to be a massive hit in Denmark in 2020 and now fans in the UK will get the chance to discover the ins and outs of the high-profile case.
