Politiet - Murder of Kim Wall - Netflix
The murder of Kim Wall, also referred to in Denmark as Ubådssagen (“The submarine case”), took place in August 2017 in Køge Bay. Wall, a Swedish freelance journalist, disappeared on the night of 10–11 August 2017 after boarding entrepreneur Peter Madsen's midget submarine UC3 Nautilus. Her body was later found dismembered and dumped in the bay. On 25 April 2018, Madsen was convicted of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment by Copenhagen City Court.

On 10 August 2017, Wall and boyfriend Ole Stobbe were preparing to host a farewell party in Refshaleøen prior to their planned move to Beijing on 16 August. Shortly before the party, she received a text from entrepreneur Peter Madsen, with whom she had requested an interview earlier in the year, inviting her to interview him on board his midget submarine UC3 Nautilus. She agreed to join him on the submarine for two hours and boarded Nautilus around 19:00 local time (UTC+2). The submarine failed to return to the harbour and Stobbe called the police at 01:43 to report Wall missing. The submarine was sighted in Køge Bay just southeast of Amager by Drogden lighthouse at 10:30; it foundered at 11:00. Madsen was arrested after being rescued from the bay and charged with negligent manslaughter; police suspected that he had scuttled the submarine.
Madsen initially stated that he had dropped Wall off on land, but then admitted to dumping her body at sea after she died in what he claimed was an accident onboard the submarine. On 21 August, Wall's torso was found washed up on a beach in the southwest of Amager. A post-mortem examination found 15 stab wounds, mostly in the groin. Police probed possible links to other murder cases in Scandinavia, including the unsolved death of 22-year-old Kazuko Toyonaga in 1986 in Copenhagen, but did not find connections to any of them. Madsen testified in a court hearing on 5 September that Wall died after being struck on the head by the submarine's hatch cover. The prosecution said that police had found videos on Madsen's computer showing women being murdered, and that witnesses said that they had seen Madsen watching videos of decapitation and practising asphyxiation sex. On 6 October, police divers found two plastic bags in Køge Bay containing Wall's head, legs, clothes and a knife; six days later, a saw was found in the water. The post-mortem found no signs of blunt trauma to the head and did not determine the cause of death. Later that month, Madsen changed his story, admitting to dismembering her body but continuing to deny intentionally killing her, saying that she may have died after poisonous exhaust gases entered the submarine while he was on deck. The post-mortem showed no signs of exhaust gases in Wall's lungs. On 21 and 29 November, police divers found Wall's arms in the bay. On 16 January 2018, Madsen was charged with murder, indecent handling of a corpse, and sexual assault. The prosecution accused him of having tortured Wall before killing her by cutting her throat or strangling her. His trial began on 8 March. On 25 April, he was convicted of all three charges and sentenced to life imprisonment. Madsen is to appeal his sentence at Copenhagen's high court in September 2018.
