The Lorenskog Disappearance Review (Netflix): Decent show, if you’re not in it for the closure

The Lorenskog Disappearance Review (Netflix): Netflix has been going full-on offense with content portraying real-life events that were either mysterious in nature and had a complex investigation or they were grim murders which do make for some amazing watch.

Another addition to that gallery is The Lørenskog Disappearance, a Norwegian Crime Thriller mini-series based on real events which have been recently released on Netflix. Created by Nikolaj Frobenius and Stephen Uhlander, the mini-series stars Yngvild Støen Grotmol, Henrik Rafaelsen, Christian Rubeck. It consists of 5 Episodes of about 50 minutes individually.

The series is based on the real-life case and investigation that happened in the wake of Anne Elisabeth Hagen’s abduction in 2018 and how the investigation affected people, the police, the media, and her husband Tom Hagen.

This case is a goldmine for true crime enthusiasts because it is, to this day unsolved. Police did not have a lot to work with because there were no signs of forced entry in the house and the little evidence, they found of struggle was of Anne who was assumed to be hiding from the kidnappers.

The kidnappers had asked Tom for a ransom of 10M Euros in Monero (Cryptocurrency) and there was little to no evidence that can relate to the kidnappers.

The kidnapping is still unsolved and after the abduction was made public as Tom did not report it to the police because the kidnappers had threatened him not to but when he did, everyone tried to solve this crime in their way, and what best way does people have to solve a crime when they can do, with their perspective of you. This came down to a matter of perspectives and bias they had towards Tom who is one of the richest people in Norway.

The show is about the investigation that is still ongoing, but it is also about how people started to have opinions and how police and other bodies associated have been working tirelessly to solve this but still haven’t been able to solve it.

However, to make a show about an investigation that is still ongoing seems a bit odd because if it isn’t finished, that means that we’re being present different views of people who are quite familiar and we’re spending our time listening to people’s own theories which will in fact create bias inside our minds.

On a personal note, I would say the show is a good one in terms of showing how people’s own interpretation of everything is far from the actual truth, which is usually the case but other than that, it’s okay to skip it since we wouldn’t get any closure.
