Earlier this year, AMC announced they were resurrecting The Killing for a third season, and now the cable channel has offered up a creepy new teaser previewing what’s in store for Linden (Mireille Enos) and Holder (Joel Kinnaman). Season three will pick up a year after the Rosie Larsen case with Holder working solo while Linden is off trying her hand at being a civilian. A young girl will once again be the impetus that brings the detectives together. When Holder stumbles onto a string of murders connected to one of Linden’s old cases while investigating the disappearance of a runaway, he’ll bring his old partner back into the fold. Unlike the Larsen case, the new case will be resolved by the end of the 10-episode season. READ MORE...

But when her ex-partner Stephen Holder's search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that connects to a previous murder investigation by Linden, she is drawn back into the life she thought she'd left behind."She tried to get out, and they pulled her back in!

If you're having trouble saying goodbye to Sarah Lund, who takes her bow and departs the Danish TV stage at the end of this third and final series of 'The Killing', spare a thought for the man who created her. "It will be sad, but I never intended to tell an endless story," explains Soren Sveistrup. "I had three stories to tell, and it would be a great shame to keep going and ruin it. I always think it's better to leave the party before the tomatoes go rotten." No doubt, there has been a lot of arm-tugging by pragmatic television executives to milk their golden goose for a few more turns by Lund, together with her jumper and torch that have become such constant companions on a cold Saturday evening. Sveistrup is suitably diplomatic... http://feeds.huffingtonpost.com/~r/HP/Entertainment/~3/qqQWtZFRG8E/the-killing-soren-sveistrup-sarah-lund-sofie-grabol_n_2296566.html
When The Killing un-kills itself for another season, don't expect to see Billy Campbell. According to Variety , Campbell's wheelchair-bound, Bockmail-checking Seattle mayor will not be part of the resurrected third season, nor will Brett Sexton or Michelle Forbes. It's still not clear what the new season would be about, but at least it won't be about Rosie Larson. http://www.vulture.com/2012/12/billy-campbell-wont-be-back-on-the-killing.html
