When Head of Homicide for Copenhagen Police Jens Møller (Søren Malling) comes in for the morning briefing, an investigator reports on a strange case. A homemade submarine carrying a female Swedish journalist and the submarine's inventor has gone missing. When the submarine is located later in the day, only the submarine's inventor is rescued before the submarine suddenly sinks. Now Jens Møller and his team of investigators must quickly decide how to approach the case, as the journalist is still missing and the submarine is at the bottom of the sea.

Jens Møller (Søren Malling) is under constant pressure from reporters who are chasing news of the case. Meanwhile, rumors and theories abound. Were the Swedish journalist and the accused previously acquainted? Did they stage it all as part of 'a happening'? The journalist's parents (Pernilla August and Rolf Lassgård) are assisting the police in their work to find out what happened to their daughter, and forensics are working hard to find important clues in the capsized submarine -- without any luck. Then the case suddenly takes a dramatic turn.

While the forensic team works, Jens Møller (Søren Malling) and his team of investigators are waiting for answers. Have they found conclusive evidence that the Swedish journalist is dead, and if so, has a crime been committed? Jens Møller goes to Sweden to confirm the journalist's death to the grieving parents (Pernilla August and Rolf Lassgård) while Navy divers search the seabed in the Sound for more clues. Jens Møller then has a radical idea that might help the investigation.

Jens Møller (Søren Malling) gets assistance with the search. Swedish cadaver dogs that can locate bodies more than 20 metres below sea level are brought in. Although the dogs mark the areas quite accurately, the divers don't find anything. There is a question over whether the dogs can be used at all. Then Jens Møller hears from an oceanographer who offers new insight.

The case is slowly coming together, but Jens Møller (Søren Malling) and his team still have no conclusive evidence. Chief Prosecutor Jakob Buch-Jepsen (Pilou Asbæk) emphasizes that they must determine the motive and cause of death in order to bring charges against the accused. They must be able to dispel any reasonable doubt. Otherwise, there's no case. Jens Møller calls a surprise press conference with the hope of encouraging the accused or his acquaintances to talk, while a more thorough search of the suspect's computer reveals some gruesome secrets.

Chief Prosecutor Jakob-Buch Jepsen (Pilou Asbæk) makes it clear to Jens Møller (Søren Malling) that they need more firm evidence to bring charges in the case. Otherwise, they risk the accused walking free. Investigator Maibritt Porse (Laura Christensen) refuses to drop the case, and after nearly 6 months of hard work she finds the key that might dispel any reasonable doubt. Jens Møller appears to have solved an impossible case, but at the same time, he realizes that his time as Head of Homicide is coming to an end.

Critic Reviews for The Investigation Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (5)

The show's center is not the gruesome details of Wall's murder, but the process of investigation itself. It's a procedural in the truest sense of the word.

Jan 25, 2021 | Full Review…

Even with an extensive epilogue dedicated to Wall and her parents' endeavors to remember their late daughter... the show can't help feeling like it's also sidelining the real-life woman without whose death it would have never existed.

Jan 26, 2021 | Full Review…

Shame. A spot of torture and 'tache-twirling would've spiced up proceedings no end.

Jan 25, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Though the horror of this case certainly casts an indelible shadow over The Investigation, it never overwhelms the unshowy, everyday goodness on display at every turn. Lindholm has certainly achieved his mission of making a story about heroes.

Jan 25, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

In its own way, it's a radical vision of a man determined that justice will be served.

Jan 25, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Rather than airbrushing his acts from history - for that heinous killing did happen, as all those so very involved must know - it had just been decided to ignore his name.
