Ingrid Wall, the mother of journalist Kim who was killed last summer while interviewing an inventor for an article, on Friday presented a radio programme which was also released as an English-language podcast. In it, she spoke about the impact of Kim's death on the family and how they have coped through the last year.

Wall is one of the presenters of Sveriges Radio's popular programme Sommar i P1, which throughout the summer invites a range of guests to present a 90-minute programme, talking about an issue close to their hearts. Usually the shows are only available to listen in Swedish, but producers have made an exception for the Wall family's story.

"We want to give an international audience the chance to hear Ingrid Wall's personal and powerful story about what changed her family's life, so we have also made an English version of the programme," Sommar i P1 programme manager Bibi Rödöö said in a press release.
