As reported two days ago, Denmark is in the midst of its very own gruesome Scandinavian thriller story to which the public has just received a stunning finale.
The Danish inventor Peter Madsen, owner of his DIY submarine (the 17 meter long Nautilus, the man is clearly a fan of the stories of Jules Verne) had invited a Swedish journalist, Kim Walls, aboard two weeks ago to write a story about him - but for some strange reason she never made it back alive.
The submarine sank and Madsen was picked up by the Danish navy, but no sign of the Swedish woman.
When questioned by the police, the inventor at first stated that he had safely dropped off the journalist on a remote Danish island but soon after changed his story, revealing that there had been ‘some sort of accident’ and that he had decided to bury her at sea.
Then yesterday, a cyclist on Amager island, just south of the Danish capital Copenhagen, found a (wait for it) legless decapitated body that had washed up on shore and immediately notified the police.
Danish police released a statement at 7am local time today. It said that overnight DNA testing has now confirmed the torso to be the remains of the 30 year old female Swedish journalist Kim Wall.
The attorney of inventor Peter Madsen, Betina Hald Engmark, reacted this Wednesday morning that the DNA match of the found torso does not affect how her client reacts to the police's accusations against him.
All of Scandinavia is eagerly awaiting the trial.
