A Heartfelt Tribute

A Silenced Voice: The Life of Journalist Kim Wall, Ingrid and Joachim Wall’s biography of their daughter, published in Sweden last year, has now been translated by STiNA member Kathy Saranpa. The publisher is Amazon Crossing with a release date of July 2020. This book weaves the sensational story of her murder with happier sections describing her childhood, her decision to write about those without a voice, and her growing success as an investigative journalist. Ingrid Wall writes: “I wake up in the middle of the night. Two different ideas have taken root in my consciousness during my half-slumber, ideas refusing to be silenced until I’ve acted on them. The first is that Kim needs to live on through a memorial fund; she will not be forgotten. The second is this book; the truth must be told, and we will write it. Kim will be depicted as the engaging and strong woman she was, as the human and journalist Kim—not as the victim. The decision gives me some respite—a luta continua—the struggle continues.”
