”Scandinavia's most bizarre criminal drama”: A critical discourse analysis of how the Kim Wall murder is constructed in Swedish podcasts. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Föreliggande studie granskar hur mordet på Kim Wall konstrueras i svenska podcasts. Mediebevakningen av fallet har kritiserats för att vara spekulativ och oetisk och det är inte bara relevant, utan av största vikt att utreda huruvida den nya medieformen podcast följer i gammelmedias fotspår. Specifikt studeras fem podcastavsnitt varav tre stycken är privatägda och två stycken är public service-ägda. Genom kritisk diskursanalys spåras hur offer och förövare konstrueras utifrån ett genus- samt medielogiskt perspektiv. Därutöver analyseras likheter och/eller skillnader i dessa konstruktioner i privatägda respektive public service-ägda podcasts.

Resultatet visar att såväl offer-, förövare- och fallet som sådant konstrueras utifrån fem olika diskursiva teman. I det första temat nästintill glorifieras förövaren Peter Madsen. I det andra- respektive tredje temat reduceras Kim Wall till en samling kroppsdelar och när hennes liv och gärning väl presenteras sker det genom en ofördelaktig förbindelse till Madsen. I det fjärde temat sensationaliseras brottet genom olika, medvetna eller omedvetna, diskursiva grepp. Slutligen beskrivs vissa skeenden med någon form av ironi, sarkasm eller satir.


Abstract [en]

The present study reviews how the Kim Wall murder is constructed in Swedish podcasts. The media coverage of the case has been criticized for being speculative and unethical and it is not only relevant, but of the utmost importance to investigate whether the new media form podcast follows in the footsteps of traditional media. Specifically, five podcast episodes are studied, of which three are privately owned and two are public service-owned. Through critical discourse analysis, it is traced how victims and perpetrators are constructed from a gender and media logic perspective. In addition, similarities and / or differences in these constructions are analyzed in privately owned and public service-owned podcasts.

The result shows that both the victim, the perpetrator and the case as such are constructed based on five different discursive themes. In the first theme, the perpetrator Peter Madsen is practically glorified. In the second- and third theme, Kim Wall is reduced to a pile of body parts and when her life and deed are presented, it is done through an unfavorable connection to Madsen. In the fourth theme, the crime is sensationalized by various, conscious or unconscious, discursive approaches. Lastly, some events are described with some form of irony, sarcasm or satire.
