I've just re-watched this DVD, and as a big fan of the genre, I have to say, emotionally, it punches way above its weight. I disagree with an earlier reviewer who suggests it doesn't dwell too much on the character of the lead players as much as the "Killing" did. Although we learned more about the circumstances of Sara Lund, I felt no emotional connection with her character. In this series I did. So much so, that although I'm not overly sentimental, I had tears running down my face at the end of the last, and most powerful episode. As in most of the Nordic Noir thrillers, the main protagonist is damaged, and at times, the way she allows her past to affect her actions can be maddening. Lars Mikkelsen from "The Killing" is here, but in a far more sympathetic role, that called for far subtler acting than before. If you're a fan of this stuff, you'll recognise other actors, from "The Killing" and "The Bridge", which was by the way, my favourite Scandinavian series until I watched this. The acting and production values in everything they do is far superior to anything the UK, or the USA delivers. Having spent some time working in Sweden a few years ago, I was deeply impressed by how the atmosphere those countries are captured in the exterior shots, although I have to name check "Hit and Miss" here, for capturing the landscape of the North of England in the same way. Look, you get 511 minutes of quality goods here, for less than you'd pay at the cinema to see Tom Cruise playing Tom Cruise. Don't think about it, just buy it. N.D.

Fans of The Killing - Series 1 and 2 [DVD] will be delighted to discover that The Killing's Lars Mikkelsen (Troels Hartmann) can be seen in Danish TV2's Those Who Kill (Den som dræber) as police chief Magnus Bisgaard. He is joined by another face from The Killing - Jakob Cedergren (Philip Dessau) who is cast as shy psychiatrist Thomas Schaeffer. Both actors perform equally as well as they did in DR's The Killing with a little less Lars and alot more Jakob in this programme.
Screened from March 2011 in Denmark ,the series was screened in the UK on ITV3 in February and March 2012.
The first mystery involves a serial killer is just under 90 minutes long is enjoyable and makes me want to check out the rest of the series.
Bodies are discovered in a forest north of Copenhagen and young, ambitious DCI Katrine Ries Jensen (played by Laura Bach) is eventually assigned the case. She wants to have Schaeffer assist her much to Bisgaard's annoyance. Eventually she gets her way and Schaeffer becomes part of the team.
Bach is just as good as the male stars of the show. Unlike The Killing, we do not get to see much of the character behind Katrine. In The Killing we had excellent exposure to the person behind the cop DCI Sarah Lund.
Guest starring in this story is Carsten Bjørnlund as Adam Krogh. Bjørnlund appears in The Killing 2 as Major Christian Søgaard.
Story 2 features guest actor is Swede David Dencik (Brotherhood [DVD]). The story starts with the discovery of a family murdered in their home. Curious Schaeffer turns up and is promptly arrested!

By Amazon Customer TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 11 Jun. 2012
Format: DVD
I watched this Danish crime series shortly after I watched the last episode of The Killing on BBC. The fact that they are both Danish (but produced by competing broadcasters), have strong, independent, untraditional and at times troublesome/troubled female police detective leads and are set in an apparently constantly dark, cold and wintery Denmark of course doesn't mean that I should expect the same quality etc. And maybe comparing them is not particularly fair on this series as I LOVED The Killing.

It IS apparent right from the beginning that this is a very different style because where it took 20 episodes to reveal the perpetrator in The Killing, Those Who Kill lets us know within the first 20 minutes and the focus then changes to trying to understand the killer's motive/mind which will help solve the crimes rather than following the normal police work of interviews etc. (and of course the victim's family) as is the case in The Killing.

The full series has 10 episodes; and for every two episodes, a new serial killer turns up, which again makes it possible to combine them to a total of 5 feature length movies. (there is a 6th storyline which will be released as a separate movie and which is not officially part of this first - and only - season).
The first two episodes take off when the body of a young female is found in a forest north of Copenhagen. The young Detective Chief Inspector, Katrine Ries Jensen, is put in charge of her first murder case and chooses to work with the intellectual and shy Forensic Psychiatrist, Thomas Schaeffer, to solve the murder. Katrine and Thomas succeed in tracking down the killer but he gets away and after his first meeting with Katrine he picks her as his next victim.
