5.0 out of 5 stars Not a lot to say except - BRILLIANT, 24 Mar 2011
This review is from: The Killing - Series 1 [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
I have read all the reviews about The Killing and as I agree with every single word written, I can merely reiterate the general opinion in that this is without doubt one of the finest series ever shown on TV. That may seem an extravagent claime but I have been watching TV for some forty years now and really cannot recall anything so good. The only other series I can think of which come anywhere near The Killing for addiction are the Wire and West Wing but these pale into significance when measured against this fine show.

Having watched Wallender, complete with subtitles, I can confirm that for those of you who might be put off because of this, they make no difference. Within one minute of watching Episode One I was tuned in and gripped. I have just returned from a month long visit to Australia visiting my daughter and I made sure my box was set to tape the episodes I would be missing. I spent the weekend catching up and after watching them all slowly came back to the real world. The last two episodes I watched, 17 and 18, had me pinned to my seat and also in tears at the end. Though I am looking forward to discovering who murdered Nanna (I have had my culprit in mind since Episode One and cannot wait to see if I am right!) I will also be deeply sad that this series has come to an end. I will be buying the DVD and am also looking forward to the next series. I gather a third series is in the making.

Brilliant, wonderful, superb.

A US version called the Killing has just been aired on satellite here in Malaysia. Its about a young girl called Rosie Larson being murdered and the hunt for whodunnit. Have the yanks just ripped off the Danish original?

In reply to an earlier post on 23 Oct 2011 13:00:58 BDT
Yes it is a remake of the Danish original. If you compare it with the Danish one, it is nowhere in their league but as a stand alone it is not too bad at all. I did watch it with some trepidation but rather enjoyed it. SLight changes and a twist at the end which means a second series is in the offing. BUT the Danish version is the one to get!
