The Investigation is a 6-part Scandinavian limited drama series from Oscar nominee Tobias Lindholm. It explores a real-life investigation into the murder of Kim Wall, a Swedish journalist, in 2017. HBO has recently acquired the North American television and streaming rights for the series and it looks nuts.
Søren Malling (A Hijacking) leads the cast as Jens Møller, the Head of Homicide for the Copenhagen Police, alongside Pilou Asbæk (HBO’s Game of Thrones) as the prosecutor Jakob Buch-Jepsen. Pernilla August (Star Wars) and Rolf Lassgård (The Hunters) star as Kim Wall’s parents, Ingrid and Joachim Wall. Further cast includes Laura Christensen (Crying for Love), Anders Juul (A Horrible Woman), Henrik Birch (Norskov), Hans Henrik Clemensen (Love and Rage), Dulfi Al-Jabouri (Darkland) and Charlotte Munck (A War).
Lindholm wrote and directed the film, and said:
It is with great humility that I created THE INVESTIGATION. There is a great deal of responsibility in choosing to tell stories about events from the real world. Therefore, I am more than grateful for all the support I’ve received, including some of Denmark’s and Sweden’s most talented and acclaimed actors.
