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.
FOR CONCLUDED SHOWS
Not much to add but the fact that as the shows were airing, they were on my list of top 5 to watch first, every week. Even wish some series running more seasons than I normally think should be avg. for a show, but I still find myself wanting the shows to comeback.
