Description

A moving memoir of an inexplicable crime, a family's loss, and a legacy preserved.

Kim Wall was a thirty-year-old Swedish freelance journalist with a rising career. Then, in the summer of 2017, she followed a story that led to an eccentric inventor in Copenhagen. Instead of writing the next day's headline, she'd become one.

As the bizarre events of Kim's murder unfolded, the world watched in shocked disbelief. For Kim's distraught parents, Ingrid and Joachim, it was a devastating personal struggle. In the ensuing months, day by grueling day, they had to come to terms with their loss, process the global media attention, and endure the investigation and trial. In the end, they'd make certain that Kim would be seen not only as a victim but as a bright, funny, complicated, ethical, and selfless young woman--a loved and loving daughter, sister, fiancée, colleague, and friend.

Kim Wall's life and promise may have been cut short, but everything she stood for lives on in this emotional memoir of braving the worst of days, moving forward, and never forgetting.

"[Kim] packed a lifetime's worth of experience into her 30 years...A tragically short life that will hopefully serve as inspiration." --Kirkus Reviews
