3.0 out of 5 stars Funny short read for The Killing Fans 22 Jan 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I got through this book farily quickly and it made me laugh very much. It was just a shame that it was so short and it did not include Season 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for any Forbrydelsen fan 6 Dec 2012
By M Evans
Format:Hardcover
Absolutely hilarious. Emma Kennedy is a fantastic writer and her passion for Forbrydelsen - shared by my whole family and probably every other viewer - shines through in the deep analysis of each series, details of Denmark, lessons in Danish, impressive craft section, and terrifying Forbrydelsen quiz! This book is made even better by the exclusive contributions from members of the cast, giving a fascinating insight into the production of this brilliant series. The introduction from Sofie Gråbøl is particularly hysterical. I will be buying it for every Forbrydelsen fan I know, and can't wait to start using the knitting patterns over Christmas!

4.0 out of 5 stars Knitting 23 Nov 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for my friend, we were both avid Killing viewers. We found the knitting patterns a hoot, though alas niether of us could knit! A must for those who like the nordic noir.

4.0 out of 5 stars Humorous view of the killing 18 Dec 2012
By godzilla78 VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Fair play to Emma Kennedy for putting together this tongue in cheek synopsis of the Killing, which is a must for any avid fan. Everything you need to know about series 1 and 2 are here in this book. At 240 pages its quiet a quick read although very enjoyable thanks to the wit and sarcasm of Kennedy. Its a pity that the book wasn't held back a little so that series 3 could have been included but what the hell! The book also offers little gems of information from the cast about various scenes. Whilst very enjoyable as a whole, I found the latter part of the book begins to lag slightly (perhaps running out of the interesting things about the show) especially when it came to discussing the famous jumper worn by Sarah Lund! Ok, I can see why the jumper is a big deal but too many pages are dedicated to it, Danish cusine, furniture and knit wear in general! And it's probably aimed at female readers more so than males due to the change in tone everytime Troels Hartmann is mentioned!
