What woman would carry a large can of hairspray and then have messy hair all of the time? That can is really curious....

Not worth it, and yeah, you guys haven’t figured ANYTHING out. Also main narrator is definitely biased and not open to theories.

I'm amazed to get to the end of episode 6 and still have no mention of psychiatric illness

why is this true crime content in the audio drama section?

Her deduction that given a grammar mistake, the person must have not been a native speaker is not sound. Native Norwegian speakers write "å" instead of "og." Native speakers can and do make mistakes, sometimes incredible ones.

Juan Abreu I agree - had the same thought. I think at most the mistakes are slight evidence that she may not have been a native German speaker.

music great! sound effects terrible. occasional fake dialogue is annoying. its obvious they are reading or have decided what to say in advance. as for the science itself : i felt they didnt follow obvious leads- what science could tell back then is amazing for the technology. i feel they should put absolutely everything online, forever, to get long term opinions. they need an anon drop box for retired agents, cops, scientists etc so they can help without being discovered. the genealogy websites which have huge dna databases should really be pursued. cold cases like this should be an exception. yes, the show was campy and predictable at times, but i think they all did great for their first go. i would listen to anything else they produced. .music: how does one purchase?

Slow, repetitious intro. Pointlesd, intrusive music. Get on with it!

You can't solve a case just so the story is better. this is real life. The broadcast itself is the last hope of solving it and it's not Serial, it's competing against so many other podcasts. It may take time to get someone to take not who knows something or it may never happen. if you want a solves mystery, read fiction. There's no worse review of a show than someone just being an unrealistic brat about it. A podcast is lucky if the case gets solved before it arbitrarily ends. Most don't.

"Do you know whats through the square window, boys and girls?!" is the playschool like tone of this podcast. The two voice over translators actually translating Scandinavian DNA scientist's giggling was properly embarrassing. Pity, could have been good.

I actually find this podcast poorly made. The hosts aren't impartial, the sound effects are gimmicky at best. Why was there a crashing boom after they drop the teeth off. The female host freaks out at the mention that she might be a prosititute. This will end and uncover nothing new. They are misusing science in the worst of ways to prove nothing. What have we learned she came from Europe...shocking! She may have been 45, shocking. It's a 50 year old case and it's a bad one.
