Killing, The (AMC 2011-2014, Mireille Enos, Snabba Cash)

Published

on

Based on the Danish series Forbrydelsen (which translates as The Crime but the series was known as The Killing outside of Denmark) The Killing taps very nice into our current love for all things Scandanavian crime, however The Killing, being an American show, transplants the action to Seattle (but actually filmed in Vancouver – a good match with its cold expansive locations).

The series follows the police investigation led by Sarah Linden who is in charge of looking for the killer of a young girl named Rosie Larsen. Also on the team is Joel Kinnaman who has just joined homicide from narcotics. The series revolves around three elements – that of the investigation, that of the family and that of the local politics surrounding the case and its attendent publicity.

Cleverly each episode focuses on a single day in the investigation and before you know it Linden quickly realises that everyone has secrets to hide. The first two episodes were broadcast together for a feature length opener.
