Kim Wall's determination and writing made her one of the most respected journalists in the world. In August 2017, she got a text from a man she had trying to interview for a long time: Danish entrepreneur Peter Madsen. She agreed to interview him on his homemade submarine. They left the harbor together, but she never returned.
The search for Wall and subsequent trial caused a media circus in Denmark, culminating in a life sentence for Madsen. It remains one of the most horrific crimes in Danish history. While the ordeal had already been dramatized for Danish TV, this two-part documentary will debut on American TV. Erin Lee Carr, creator of such sensational true crime docs as Mommy Dead and Dearest and I Love You, Now Die, returns to HBO after two films for Netflix.
Undercurrent: The Disappearance of Kim Wall premieres on HBO on March 8.
