Note: Many people felt cheated at the resolution of Season One when questions about the central mystery were still unresolved. So beware, if this is a deal breaker for you--"The Killing" may not satisfy exactly what you are expecting.

AMC, having established itself a leader in smart and sophisticated counter-programming (Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Rubicon), serves up another winner with "The Killing"--an adaptation of a successful Danish television series. I, personally, look at the show as the thematic cousin to "Twin Peaks" albeit with a completely different tone and vibe. Both shows center around the murder of a girl, both even feature the tagline "Who Killed.....(Rosie Larsen and Laura Palmer, respectively)," both chart three similar storylines, and both shows met with viewer hostility when the season didn't fully wrap up the murder mystery. In both, we see the investigation progress, we see the painful aftermath on the girl's family and friends, and we see how the murder may be tied to local politicians and bigwigs. That, of course, is where the similarities cease. "The Killing" is a deadly serious and contemplative drama set in Seattle--not at all encumbered with the quirky eccentricities that defined that other Washington State township. It is an intense and quiet show with a slow build--those eager for easy answers and constant action may need to look elsewhere. The pace of "The Killing" is more akin to the unraveling of a fine novel.

Through successive episodes, the path to identifying the murderer becomes increasingly muddy. Steely and determined Mireille Enos play the intrepid lead investigator haunted by past mistakes. She is unable to move on with her own life and, in fact, sacrifices potential happiness in her dogged pursuit of justice.

update: I did not keep watching this series because it was identical to the Danish one, almost frame for frame. Imagine my surprise then to hear that viewers were in an uproar when it finished this week because there is a cliffhanger instead of a resolution plus (evidently) the murderer in the American version is not going to be the same person as in the Danish original. I was amazed because the Danish one could not have ended in a more clear cut and logical fashion. The murder was solved. The murderer was someone quite logical and a "person of interest" throughout to the investigators. My recommendation is now to go find the Danish one, which is excellent. It is too bad that the Americans didn't just keep reproducing it frame for frame, the way they started out.

This is an American remake of a Danish tv series of the same name. I have seen the entire Danish tv series. This is a very faithful and well done recreation of the series yet changes it to English language and Seattle rather than Copenhagen. There are some fairly minor differences so far between the two scripts. For example, the lead detective, a woman, has a real battleaxe of a mother staying with her in the Danish version as she's getting ready for her second marriage in three weeks time. She has been eliminated in the American version but she is the only character to be eliminated. Since I found the mother very annoying, I don't see that as a flaw. Some other slight differences: her underling male detective in the American version is not hostile to her like he is in the Danish one. In fact, they seem to get along; the male politician in Copenhagen is a lot more complex character than he is in Seattle but that may be because Copenhagen politics are downright baffling.

Got hooked on the first few episodes of season 3 and decided to go back and watch the first 2 before watching any more. Glad I did. Not exactly the quality of The Wire but comes as close as anything I've seen since. I read a lot of criticisms about not solving the case at the close of Season 1 and completely disagree. Instead it's what separates this show from the rest of the quick solve police shows on TV. Watching the detectives work the case is what gives this show an authenticity and the consequences of the killing on so many different lives is as compelling as it is hard to watch.

"The Killing" is a drama about the murder of a young woman and the lives affected, including homicide detectives, friends, family, and suspects. The show takes its subject matter seriously; the writing is authentic and the performances are believable.

SPOILER-FREE

I'll preface by telling you some of my favorite television shows, so you can see if we're on the same page as far as taste in shows. I do love most of AMC's original programming, and am a really diehard fan of Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, and Mad Men. AMC has proven to be a real contender as far as top-notch television shows go, even rivaling HBO with its highly acclaimed Mad Men and Breaking Bad. I also think that The Walking Dead is brilliant, but I guess its premise makes it a little less popular with critics and tends to be taken less seriously. The Killing is an AMC original show as well, but has received FAR less acclaim than any of the aforementioned shows. While it's not the greatest show I've ever seen, it's definitely in the leagues of other AMC shows. As far as my favorite television goes - my favorite shows of all time are The Sopranos, The Wire, Breaking Bad, and Deadwood.

Anyway, hope that helps to see if maybe you can relate to my opinions of this show. When I first tried watching The Killing, I was honestly just not interested in it. I'm not sure if it was just an off day for me or what, but it didn't engross me at all and after the first episode I decided I was done. However, after a family member kept raving to me about it and I re-checked the reviews (the first season has killer ones), I decided to give it one more chance.

This time I watched two episodes instead of one. That did the trick. If you watch the first episode and are unsure or unimpressed, at LEAST give one or maybe even two more episodes a try. I think by then it will really hook you in and you'll see the brilliance in the show. I did.
