The case made headlines throughout Denmark, and was then turned into a book – also titled The Nurse. That was written by journalist Kristian Corfixen and published in October 2022.

The true-crime novel served as the basis for the Netflix series, with showrunner Kasper Barfoed stating: “The starting point was the book by Corfixen. Nobody knows more about the case than he did.”

As for how the murders went undetected in the hospital, Barfoed tells Netflix: “There’s a trust [among Danes] more so than in the rest of the world. We’re inclined to trust that the system wants the best for us. We’re vulnerable when things like this happen. Nobody wants to be the one to ruin the good mood.”
