Kim Wall

On 10 August 2017, Swedish freelance journalist Kim Wall boarded the midget submarine UC3 Nautilus, in Køge Bugt, Denmark, with the intent of interviewing its owner, Danish entrepreneur Peter Madsen.

She was reported missing after Nautilus failed to return to Refshaleøen, Copenhagen.The submarine was found sunken the following morning and Madsen was arrested upon being rescued from the water.

Between 21 August and 29 November, the parts of Wall's dismembered body were found in different locations around the area.Charged with her murder, Madsen was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment on 25 April 2018 by Copenhagen City Court following a widely publicised trial.

The case is also known in Denmark as Ubådssagen (transl. "The submarine case").On 20 October 2020 Madsen briefly escaped from prison, by threatening a prison employee, but was surrounded and apprehended by police 500 metres (547 yd) from the prison and subsequently taken back into custody.

In 2020 a television dramatisation of the case was created by Tobias Lindholm.
