My first thought was monetary wrong doing on his part. That should be public knowledge. She seemed a genuine journalist that would look at the money trail and come to a conclusion that the numbers do not add up.
I really hope that her boyfriend knows what she was working on. Or at least has access to her computer. I would love to hear her side of the story.
That is the problem with freelance journalism--you do not answer to a boss, have your stories vetted by fact checkers, or have the cache of a card carrying member of the press. Those things can protect you (a bit) when it comes to questionable individuals.
Then again, there are people that are going to end a certain way no matter how they get there. He seems like that type. Which is shame because "insanity" will be the cry from an "eccentric" inventor by his lawyers. That ending would just leave a bad taste in my mouth.
I guess we have some time to wait to see how it works out. At least he is behind bars. It does not bring Kim Wall back which is sad.
You mentioned, "premeditated" which makes me wonder if he has done this before?
Prosecutors in Denmark say they will bring murder charges against the inventor suspected of killing a Swedish journalist on board his submarine.
They are expected to ask for the new charges when Mr Madsen appears in court in early September.

I think it was a sex crime.
He put the move on her on the sub, she rejected him and he became angry.

I know you can't judge a book by its cover... but he looks creepy to me. I thought that before all the facts came out, and now that we know that he dismembered her body, I am satisfied that the creepy vibe was accurate.
“I’d like to secretly build a zeppelin and fly over Copenhagen in it as a swarm of police cars chase me on the ground. I’d land the balloon between the two spires of Roskilde Cathedral as the police wait to arrest me,” he said to Søndagsavisen.
In the same interview, Madsen also stated his desire to “have a criminal track record in the long run. I don’t mean I want to rob a bank. Heavens no, it mustn’t do anyone any harm.”
She once even managed to slip into North Korea.
Two years ago, in a dispute with volunteers who helped him build his UC3 Nautilus, Madsen sent an odd text message.
“There is a curse on Nautilus,” he wrote, according to his website. “The curse is me. There will never be peace on Nautilus as long as I exist.”
He was a creative genius who treasured his freedom, which sometimes included “sexual experimenting in fetish groups” even though he was married and “lives with a partner he loves,” his biographer, Thomas Djursing, told The Post.
Danish law prevented him from taking passengers out to sea. It’s unclear why he broke the rules with Wall aboard.
Now, Wall is the story, her tale more suited to the pages of a twisted Nordic crime novel. Indeed, the grisly findings are difficult to believe.
Police found traces of Wall’s blood in the submarine after they recovered the 40-ton vessel, which they say Madsen deliberately sank as the search for Wall went into high gear.
And then, last week, a nude headless torso of a woman was found floating in the waters off a beach south of Copenhagen.
DNA tests revealed that the torso belonged to Wall.
And she wasn’t simply dismembered. Police said that the air was deliberately squeezed from her torso, which was weighed down with pieces of metal to ensure that it would sink.
'This is done with the help of Swedish police who have trained special dogs for, among other things, searching on water. The search is done to locate, if possible, the missing body parts from Kim Wall, "the police writes.
The search is expected to continue for the next two days.
Leif GW Persson believes it is crucial to find Kim Walls head
The well-known criminology professor and author Leif GW Persson fear that the evidence against submarines Peter Madsen will not hold a murder sentence.
Murderer goes free
Persson, who for many years worked in the Rikspo artistry, tells about three murder investigations where the victims were dumped, divided or tried hidden. In all three cases, the suspects were released, even if he was "obviously" guilty.
Now Persson fears that the same can happen to Madsen, who is charged with killing Kim Wall.
September 2nd, 2017
Another theory is that Wall was killed because she was working on a story that implicated Madsen and a worldwide drug smuggling ring.
An unnamed source wrote to CPH POST on August 18 to present evidence that Wall had written a story on the coc aine trade in the Americas and that submarines are used to transport coc aine.
Furthermore, dismembered torsos are the hallmark of South American drug lords.
