This show is phenomenal. Unfortunately alot of critics complain that the show is very slow-paced, or not moving quickly enough. But literally each episode covers one day. This show is supposed to mirror real-life, everyday emotions and movement through a murder case, and it does just that and more. I, like the previous reviewer, appreciate the fact that this show avoids the common theme: "sex sells." I love that this show makes you think, and draws you in with its beautiful imagery (the way the camera is used) and acting. This show is very well-casted all around, specifically members of the Larsen family and Detective Linden and Holder. The emotions of the Larsen family throughout the course of this show is just so real and raw.

The season finale of The Killing, definitely answers "Who killed Rosie Larsen?" I think that the answer to this question was surprising and definitely left me in a daze. There were so many twists and turns in this episode, and you really see certain characters change, or unleash a part of themselves that was previously hidden. Another thing that critics complained about was that they felt as though they still did not know who Rosie Larsen was a person. I admit that we did not get a great overall sense of who Rosie Larsen was, but one, that is not the premise of the show, or what the show set out to answer; and two, the little we did know about Rosie was well-crafted--people were drawn to her. And I find it amazing that one teenage girl changed the lives and situations of people forever. I feel as though the season finale of The Killing was amazing, and hopefully this show gets a well deserved season 3!

This episode doesn't disappoint, but then I haven't found an episode that didn't leave me analyzing, reflecting and begging for more. I never dreamed that a show involving a single homicide could take such a multitude of diverse paths and story lines while stimulating a viewers intellect and challenging ones' cognitive thinking process. All of this coming from a cable network channel. A sincere thank you & a true entertainment bravo to all involved with writing/production/direction, etc. Linden & Holder's characters have me completely involved in each development and loving every directional twist that continues to arise!

I found both series 1 and 2 utterly enthralling. The plot kept me guessing and looking forward to the next episode. But above all it was the acting that impressed me the most. Each character was well-drawn and thoughtfully played. The slower pace allowed the development of more-rounded characters than usually seen in detective series. The story was propelled, more often than not, by gestures and silences. I think it takes strong ensemble acting to achieve that, and this group really seemed to have it!. If Sarah Linden and Holder come back in another series - I will not be disappointed!!

It goes to show, the world we live in, everybody wants the "quick fix." This show is masterfully executed...brilliantly timed. What started as another murder story of a teen, has mushroomed into a broad-scoped, ominous, multifaceted mini novel. The plateaus in between the rises are well-placed. There are NO "slow spots." Those who think so are impatient and immature. And now, with "Sayonara Hiawatha" things get ratcheted up yet another notch. The way this is written and produced, the story is more than just about Rosie's murder--it's bigger...MUCH bigger. I don't feel like things are being "milked" or drawn out at all. There's so much more at stake here and Linden and Holder are the only ones keeping the heat under the Rosie Larsen case so as to make things happen AT ALL. Otherwise, the darker, more sinister happenings would continue to go on undetected. Rosie was a sore sacrifice to slay the evil beast(s) that have been lurking...circling in the dark waters of the Seattle harbor and waterfront. STICK WITH IT!

From the 1st show I was hooked! Literally!! I loved how they left out sex scandals and scenes without sex and how it wasn't about sex at all!! That seems to be on every station, and on every show. It was a very realistic case with some very passionate detectives trying to figure it out!! I couldn't get over how every show took a turn that I could not see coming!! Absolutely made me so intrigued I had know what was next!! Great Job everybody!! Thanks Amazon for making The Killing series available online (and as soon as the next day after the program aired!!) because I do not have cable TV. Amazon made it affordable too! And so easy!! Thanks again Amazon, AMCtv, the actors who were so real, producers, etc! Awesome!

This series continues to be intriguing. A glimpse into the personal hells of characters circled within the ripples of a young woman's murder. Just when things become obvious the focus eclipses. Layers peel back upon layers. We have to forgive our heroes their sins. We have to rethink our conclusions. Everyone is breaking the rules a little. And the rules are breaking everyone. You find it slow? I find it intense!!!
