Original title: Hvem drepte Birgitte

Who killed Birgitte? In 1995, on the small, idyllic island of Karmøy, in Western Norway, 17-year-old Birgitte Tengs is brutally molested and murdered, a short distance from her home.

After a two-year investigation, the police ignore the forensic evidence and interrogate her 19-year-old cousin for 3 weeks. He finally confesses to a murder he can't recall. Later, he withdraws his confession, but it is still considered in court and is his downfall, as he is found guilty of rape and murder, and sentenced to 14 years in prison. In the appeal, his confession is dismissed, and he is exonerated by the jury, but the judge still sentences him to pay damages.

 

The True Crime Series’ Investigation reveals the desperation of the police to find a murderer. After two long years with no specific suspects, they suddenly choose to focus on just the cousin, while ignoring several other actual suspects. So, 23 years later, the question still remains: Who killed Birgitte?
