Season 3 begins one year after the close of the Rosie Larsen case (the focus of The Killing's first two seasons), with Sarag Linden (Mireille Enos) no longer working as a Seattle homicide detective.
But when her ex-partner Stephen Holder's (Joel Kinnaman) search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that may connect to a previous murder investigated by Linden, she is drawn back into the life she thought she'd left behind. The new season also stars Peter Sargaard, Elias Koteas and Amy Seimetz.

Here, the two detectives are on another case and new characters reintroduced.
It was a free stream of episode 1 of season 3 that got me into The Killing in the first place. After seeing episode 1, I had to watch the rest of it.
Just like season 1 and 2, season 3 is dark, wonderfully acted and beautifully filmed. The writing is great and it is a show I could watch over and over again.
The slow pace of this show will no doubt lose those who are not happy unless explosions or shootings are happening every five seconds, but for those who like great detective murder mysteries, you will love this show.
It's one of my favourites and a definite one to own on blu ray.
i loved the Rosie larsen murder partly because it reminded me of twin peaks and it was so tense especially when you warmed and connected to the characters so much more (esp stan) in season 2.
I think with this series i feel more irritated with some characters ie bullet and lyric who despite previous reviews i do not find believable at all.
As ever Holder and linden are brilliant and are prehaps the only reason why im still engaged with the programme.
I really hope this one will get better throughout the series but so far i find myself not craving the next episode as i had with the last two series
There's a raft of new characters to maintain a certain freshness. The most memorable of these is an outstanding, intense, conflicted performance from Peter Sarsgaard as a death row inmate. Holder also picks up an entertaining douche bag of a new partner to give another edge to proceedings.
The new case, involving a serial killer preying on young prostitutes, rattles along in the usual blur of false suspects, red herrings and at time shoddy police work (it has to be said). There's a suitable amount of tension and suspense including the obligatory cliffhangers every other episode. Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman are as good as ever (Kinnamans still the best thing in it) as their odd couple dynamic develops further while their efforts are strong enough to raise things above cliche.
I guess that overall it doesn't quite match the previous season but they raised the bar so high with such a payoff that time that it was always going on be tough to match it. This is still cracking stuff though.
I know this is shot as a dark, gloomy drama, but it's so dark that even with my tv turned up to full brightness I can barely make out what's going on!
It's unfortunate as its ruining the season for me a bit. Series 1 and 2 weren't like this, I hope series 4 isn't as I might not bother watching it lol
