This review is from: The Killing: All Debts Must be Settled, Complete Season Three [DVD]  (DVD)
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.
