    Did this guy know she was ditching her own going away party to go for a ride on his submarine for this interview? I think Kim wal being the professional that she was, might not have mentioned any of that stuff to him Incase it may have wasted the opportunity to get that interview otherwise. Does anyone else think this too?

    Personal I think unless this guy had totally lost it by this time... I don’t think he thought anyone knew she was going on the submarine with him that night. He was too blinded by his fantasy and thought he could get away with the perfect murder. After killing her - he likely found her phone and discovered texts and photos sent putting her on the sub with him. He panics, tries desperately to get rid of her body, tosses both phones, decides to sink the sub after considering suicide as he is pretty convinced he’s going to prison. Decides not to kill himself as he is an extreme coward (weak man/ preys on woman/ be littles business partners and bullies employees) thinks I’ll try my hand at just trying to get away with it. Heck I’ve achieved everything else I set out to do but one rocket launch, maybe I’ll beat this too. Law Enforcement did a hell of a job on this case, top notch. I did not get to mention on the show that it cannot be overstated the next level of investigation when the victim is from a neighboring country. Kim - Sweden and Peter - Denmark. Cheers Nic

    Long time listener and fan of the show. You guys do a great job! Being so close to home I knew a lot about the case. Swedish television did a doc on the case. It was very detailed and thorough. You could definitely hear the Captians emotions on Danish/Europes sentencing. I was born I Rockford, Ill and moved to "home" to Sweden when I was 14. (Swedish parents). Im 36 now. Hated it then but now I wouldn't trade it for anything. Healthcare, education and so on. But one thing I can never understand is our justice system. In Sweden, a life sentence is pretty much 20-30 years. If I'm not mistaken, no one prisoner has been in jail for longer than 25-30 years. I shit you not that a man convicted of one rape may receive 3-6 years MAX, and be out in 2,5. Its crazy. In 1998 4 or 5 guys, teenagers, started a fire att a disco and blocked the doors. Over 63 teenagers died, some my friends, and all of the offenders are out, living under protective custody. Maybe there is something to rehabilitation, but tell that to the parents. I don't understand it. If you really want to piss the Captain off may I suggest Anders Breivik, the terrorist that blew up a government building and murderd over 80 campers on an island In Norway. Google the laws in Norway about life sentencing. I won't say anymore than that because you wouldn't believe me without reading it yourself. Outrageous... Anyway, love the podcast. Cant find any other true crime show that even comes close. The Swedes like the cut of your jib! -Nick

    A submarine is definitely a boat. Submariners refer to them as boats. Hence the term "U-Boat". Or the movie "Das Boot" (The Boat). Totally a boat.

    Hi guys! It was very interesting to hear you talk about this case from my own region. This was a case that everyone here was discussing, and it was all over the news. It was such a mystery, and even now when the trial is over (he will be sentenced today) it still feels like a mystery. How did he possibly think that he could get away with this? Also i would like to comment on the Swedish and Danish prison times. I also feel, like you, that the prison times are way too short, but the rehabilitation here actually works. We have a much lower crime rate than most other countries. And for the really brutal murderers there are lifetime without parole (but very unusual). I would very much like to hear about more crimes from Scandinavia, but i guess it is hard to find translated to english. We have some really interesting, dark murder cases, just like the scandinavian detective storys ;) So with that I send a 'Cheers' all the way from South Sweden, and keep up the good work!
