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.
A work in progress, I am so far behind in most of these that I'll need a fortnight off work just to catch up on one of them!!!! Some, I missed when they were shown, others I forgot about them as they went on hiatus or perhaps didn't like them before but have been persuaded to give them another chance...if you see this list and have a recommendation, leave it in the comments! :)
Any kind of show featuring police, detective work, or mystery - from the serial killers Dexter and Hannibal, Bones the forensic anthropologist, to comics and comedies like Marvels Agent's of SHIELD, Chuck, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
