This is the far-fetched story of a hard-up woman who is desperately in need of money to help her dangerously ill daughter. A huge inheritance ( five million) can be hers on condition that she kill someone who allegedly deserves to die.
Some things can have that special magic that means you want to return to them again and again.... how many times do people watch the BBC Pride and Prejudice? How often will the DVD of the Killing be revisited? Gavin and Stacey, I have to ration myself.
The Reckoning however, if you missed it on TV, you would be better to rent rather to buy, because although it passes the time well enough, once you have seen it, you have seen it.
