Oddly enough, reading subtitles for hours doesn't bother me, in fact I hardly notice it, which says a great deal about the power of these series to enthrall. Also, so much more meaning is conveyed by tone and body language in the original version than by dubbing. Once again, this is brilliantly written and performed, and again, Sarah Lund with her persistence, her irresistable gut feelings and reappearing jumpers just stays in the mind like a tortured friend. I'm also utterly grateful for the change from American police heroines - all of them perfectly beautiful, perfectly groomed, perfected educated and perfectly unreal. I also welcome the novelty of Nordic culture in these series, which brings its own freshness. Because the characters feel more fallible and true to life I consequently feel less manipulated, which I often do feel when faced with yet another predictable Hollywood plot. If you enjoyed the previous series, you will love this one - but a word of warning. I find buying the boxed series has the same effect as opening a box of chocolates, i.e. you have one and you can't rest until you have another, and another. I'm afraid I tend to watch them back to back in a Tele Fest and nothing else gets done.

I am addicated to these Nordic films and I just think that the actress Sofie Grabol is so good and I can't wait to see further films which should hopefully follow the ending in this series three.Once you start watching these dvd's( films) you just keep asking for more and more they keep you thinking and you are on the edge all the time.

I agree that unless you are a Danish speaker you need to concentrate hard to read the subtitles, observe people's body language and notice what is happening in the often short scenes which switch rapidly between the various plot threads, frequently leaving gaps for you to fill in. I wish I had thought of making a note of the various characters starting with Episode 1, which you may need to watch twice to grasp the political background of this thriller.

Although you do not need to have seen the previous two series, it is an obvious advantage to have done so. Series 3 may be the best in terms of coherent plot and character development. There are some similarities with Series 1 e.g. the sensitive in-depth coverage of a couple's desperation when their child is kidnapped; a cunning criminal who has a specific and unusual motive rather than being a simple "serial killer"; complex political shenanigans with a charismatic but flawed leader trying to win an election but dependent on trade-offs with small parties ("The Killing" does little to further the case for coalitions) and requiring the support of a major industry, in this case "Zeeland" - realistic when you consider the size of Denmark.

Still driven and preoccupied with the latest case to the point of obsession, Sarah Lund retains the tendency to walk round in the dark with a torch, usually without backup, which has become an almost comical trademark of the series. She is as unconcerned about her personal appearance as ever, although wears a wider range of jumpers - I particularly liked the white one with a striking chevron pattern. She admits to having been a "bad mother", but her attempts to be reconciled with her son are invariably interrupted by a phone call on the latest crisis at work.

just an absolutely brilliant drama. the characters are really good far more believable than English dramas as everyone is ordinary and not made up in sexy clothes or make-up. Excellent plots are characters.

Good characters, interesting and original pltes, Scandinavian scenery and great acting. What more could you want? Nordic Noir is definitely the genre of the decade so far, save for breaking Bad!

One of the best detective shows on television, though a little long. When I see movies like this from our neighbours, I wonder why it is that we in the UK show so much home grown junk on our televisions when there is such good material to be bought form overseas. I wonder if this in itself is a reflection of the British appetite.

Without doubt this is the best of the recent Danish Noir thrillers. More intricately plotted than the previous 'Killing' series, its intensity grabs you early on and just won't let you go. Praise first must go to the writer Søren Sveistrup; who has again produced a cleverly intricate but totally plausible crime story. The main story is again offset by an equally absorbing political drama, which enables you to catch your breath before the main narrative leaps forward again, with the police trying desparately to keep up with the 'killer'.

At the centre of it all is DI Sarah Lund (Sofie Gråbøl), an actress brilliantly able to inject the same convincing intensity to her character as the story she is entwined in. There are many other excellent performances, especially Lund's boss, DCI Lennart Brix (Morten Suurballe), who clearly appreciates Lund's detective inventiveness and is prepared to cut her the necessary slack when her hunches back-fire.

It all makes for compelling television, and sets what might be an impossible standard to better for what might come next.
