The Investigation (HBO, 10:00pm) — This Scandinavian limited drama series follows the real-life investigation into the 2017 murder of a Swedish journalist (Kim Wall) in what became one of Danish history’s most notorious criminal cases (aptly dubbed the “Submarine Case”).

This week, the forensic team may just find some conclusive evidence.
In case you missed these recent picks:

Watch out for that brutal Easter egg, though.
