In the course of 20 gripping days we follow the leads and observe the consequences of a heinous crime that seem to ramify throughout Copenhagen. As the investigation unfolds, Copenhagen opens up like a Chinese box, full of secrets and power struggles. It all starts when head of investigations in the homicide department has her last day at work before embarking on a new chapter in her life. An all but normal family at Vesterbro are minding their everyday life and contemplate moving, when the parents are suddenly thrown into their worst imaginable nightmare. At the same time a top politician is involved in a ruthless but promising election campaign. They all become part of the same story as the police follow the leads. A homicide case takes its beginning and so does the hunt for the perpetrator. In the course of 20 intense days in November their lives change forever.

I caught the first five episodes on a flight to the UK and was hooked. I HAD to have the series. I tried everything-- recoding my dvd player, downloading episodes, doing without. Finally, I bit the bullet. I bought the series AND the cheapest all-region dvd player on Amazon ($30). It couldn't have been easier. They both arrived within a few days, and the dvd player is simple to set up and control. Another, equally compelling reason I wanted to buy this series, is because I'm tired of US entertainment companies doing remakes that suck and then making it impossible for us to see the originals. So for $75, or $3.50 an episode, I have 20 hours of great entertainment with stellar acting, real atmosphere, and compelling drama, not an imitation. When I'm done, I'll pass it along to a friend. Here's the all-region dvd player I bought: iView 102DV All Region DVD Player

Had to write a short review to provide a counter to the first one. We started on this series on the basis of the critical reviews of the first couple episodes of the AMC remake. They stated that as good as the AMC version is, if you can get it, the original is even better. In two episodes we were hooked and basically marathoned the 20 episodes. Not sure where the first reviewer got the Twin Peaks analogy, other than a murdered girl, as the tone is polar to that series. The winning piece of Forbrydelsen is that each character is focused on in parts, and each is a full real character, shades of grey in all. Well worth your time!

I first saw 'The Killing' last year on US television on the AMC channel. This was the US version, and I quickly became entranced with this remarkable crime thriller, taking place in Seattle. The ending of year one was very disappointing, the characterization and plot line was remarkable.

And, then I had a chance to view the original Danish version, ' Forbrydelsen' series. Is it possible for one person to view 20 episodes in a week? This series is so fantastic that I was compelled to view all 5 discs, 4 episodes per disc. I also feel compelled to say that if you have a chance to view this series, grab it, run as fast as possible to your DVR, and prepare for a siege, load up on liquids and food.

'Forbrydelsen' takes place in Copenhagen. The city we see seldom has sun, we see the rain, dreary, crime ridden side of Copenhagen. Sarah Lund, played by Sofie Grabol, plays the lead Detective Inspector. As we meet her she is getting ready to leave her job to start a new life with her fiancee and son in Stockholm. And, then, on her last day, after the party and the good-byes, a horrific crime is committed. However, all we know at first is that a young woman's bloody underclothes are found in a wooded area. Lund is called and with her acute detectives intuition moves on to solve the crime. Her partner, excuse the expression, in crime, is the new Detective Inspector, Jan Meyer. He expects to be in charge but as the case proceeds, he accepts Sarah is staying. We don't know much about Sarah and Jan. But as time moves along, their characters are fleshed out, and we come to accept and understand them better, so it is easier to predict how they will react. We meet the murder victim in flashbacks, the parents, the family, the working colleagues of the parents.

I can't be the only one in North America who'd like to be able to see this without buying another DVD player. What gives? Help amazon! Someone is missing a potential profit center here!

Not to knock the AMC channel version which is actually very good . The acting is superb and it still kept a very dark Nordic Noir "feel" to the production.
I know a lot of people in the US will not watch a show that has English subtitles so if that is the case the English Language AMC version is the way to go for you.
The original is an absolute masterpiece, others have said it all so I won't go on about it.

Either way do not miss this great show !!!.

Addendum:
Well I finally finished the 20 episode (PAL Import version) and I must admit it IS light years ahead of the AMC USA series (Which is no slouch either), even if you don't like sub-titled movies you MUST see this version, it is the best crime series since the early Prime Suspect,Homicide,Frost & Twin Peaks IMHO in fact it's even better, the complexity of the plot, the ever shifting plethora of suspects the impact of the crime not just on the family but the all of characters is just captivating and so rarely seen in our contemporary TV where everything gets wrapped-up in 60 minutes, life & death, good & bad are not that simple. Kudos to Danish TV for reminding us that TV does not have to be dumbed-down for morons who who have never read a good book unless it was required reading for an college exam.

This is probably one of the most engrossing, well-written, well-acted TV series I've seen. Right from the beginning you are absolutely hooked and really have no idea how it will end until the last moments. Every episode is done with such high quality - from the script to the setting to the cinematography. Actress Sofie Grabol (plays Sarah Lund) gives an outstanding performance with her subtle nuances and natural acting. I highly recommend this series!
