In 2018, Madsen was sentenced to life imprisonment for torturing and murdering 30-year-old Swedish reporter Kim Wall, who came to his submarine to interview him and make a report. Madsen has denied murdering Wall and claimed that she died as a result of an accident inside the submarine. However, he confessed to throwing her body parts into the sea.
