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.
Season 1 was the bomb, season 2 was so frikkin boring, pretty much nothing happaned, the dead girl story became a sort of political consiparancy which I don't really care about, sorry Rosie! Your death was pointless. Finally I picked up Season 3 and with my relief I get a whole new path, finally about a serial killer!! YAY! Hit me with more please!
Screenplay written perfectly unpredictable and frankly is the most serious I've seen serial . Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman ( RoboCop ) impressed me most hopes to see you in future productions . Very well done, it is one of the best cop show lately ! I liked the actors' performance , the atmosphere , just stretched too much sometimes seems certain sequences . Ending is quite unpredictable.
Muy buena. Intrigante y bien actuada. Se desarrolla con un buen ritmo y mucho suspenso, logrando mantener la ansiedad por querer saber hacia dónde se dirige la historia y cada una de sus líneas argumentales.
I really enjoyed this show, but then I am a fan of crime dramas, so I would. I agree with the other reviewers that the show runs slow. There was just enough twists and surprises to keep me watching to the end. I guess this is just another case of "you either love it or you hate it".
A psychopath is on a killing spree. Two detectives are after him, but they themselves are borderline sociopaths.
This show was picked up and had an european predecessor.
The danish version is better in some ways, but this show also delivers a lot of thrilling tension.
You have to watch this one for sure!
This show is very slow moving and deliberate and I don't know if it warrants such slow movement and action.. Falling a sleep during the pilot does not help... Hope the mystery part of who did the killing is answered in the 1st season.. I don't mind slow shows like True detective because the actors in the 12 episode show is fascinating and you know as an audience it will be different next season.
