On an island near Copenhagen, a Swedish journalist boards a homemade submarine. Hours later, her partner reports her missing. Then a mutilated body washes up on a nearby beach. But what happened to Kim Wall, and what role did the inventor Peter Madsen play in her disappearance?
Wall was born on March 23, 1987, in Trelleborg, a town in the far south of Sweden. After studying international relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science, she began focusing on journalism and international affairs.
After gaining a master’s degree from New York’s Columbia University, Wall embarked on a successful career in journalism. Featured in high-profile publications such as Time magazine, The New York Times and The Guardian, much of her writing focused on the very fringes of society.
