The entrepreneur was rescued and claimed to have let the journalist off the boat before it sank. Although, her dismembered body parts were later found in different locations around the area.
In April, Madsen was convicted of Kim's murder and sentenced to life in prison - thanks to Møller and the Copenhagen Police force's tireless efforts.
The gripping series is being made in close cooperation with Jens' as well as Kim's parents, Ingrid and Joachim Wall, who previously stated that they didn't want their daughter's memory to be forgotten.
It was announced today (Wednesday, 9th October) that the BBC has acquired the highly-anticipated show, which was written and directed by Oscar-nominated Tobias Lindholm.
Speaking of the series, Tobias, who recently worked with David Fincher on Netflix's Mindhunter, shared: "It is with great humility that I create The Investigation. There is a great deal of responsibility in choosing to tell stories about events from the real world.
"Therefore, I am more than grateful for all the support I've received, including some of Denmark's and Sweden's most talented and acclaimed actors."
While Sue Deeks, BBC Head of Programme Acquisition, added: "Tobias Lindholm is an extraordinarily gifted and sensitive film-maker, and we are so looking forward to bringing the remarkable story of The Investigation to BBC viewers".
The series is currently in production in Denmark and an air date is yet to be announced.
