The Killing

The Killing

The Killing is based on the wildly successful Danish television series Forbrydelsen and tells the story of the murder of a young girl in Seattle and the subsequent police investigation.
The Killing ties together three distinct stories around a single murder including the detectives assigned to the case, the victim's grieving family, and the suspects. Set in Seattle, the story also explores local politics as it follows politicians connected to the case. As the series unfolds, it becomes clear that there are no accidents; everyone has a secret, and while the characters think they've moved on, their past isn't done with them. (Source: AMC)

Many thanks to AMC for airing this wonderful series. The Killing is TV at its best. The writing, directing and acting were extraordinary. Everyone shone. In the first episode, the performances by Rosie's parents as they learn of her murder were gut wrenching -- very real, very honest. The series never faltered. It remained compelling down to the last minute of the last episode. As a fan of noir Scandinavian mysteries, I appreciated the dark atmosphere and the sparse words of of the two detectives, all no doubtedly due to its Danish origin. This is a "must see" series.

Great entertainment. Well written, well played show. The chemistry between the two main actors is quite interesting (the viewer can feel the heat between them, but the characters don't). I would watch this show for as many seasons as it played. Read more
