The complete series of the Danish-language crime drama from the producers of 'The Killing'. As police detectives Katrina Ries Jensen (Laura Sofia Bach) and Thomas Schaeffer (Jakob Cedergren) investigate a sequence of grisly murders they come to realise that they may be dealing with something they have never faced before - a serial killer. With the media feeding the public's alternating fascination and terror in the face of the crimes, Katrina and Thomas attempt to form a psychological profile of the killer. It ultimately becomes clear to both that in order to capture the perpetrator of the crimes, they will have to learn to think like a killer...
Danish murder investigations make excellent fictional TV. "Those Who Kill" adds to the genre, and is as good as the many alternatives on the market; and with a bit to spare in my view. Not only are the stories excellent, compelling and well acted, I think the two main characters are fantastic. It`s very easy to be drawn to the attractive Katrine (the leading cop), and also the brilliant Thomas Schaeffer (forensic psychologist). Throw in some handy support acts (such as Lars Mikkelsen) and convincing serial killers, and you have a crackerjack show on your hands. Wish there were many more than the six episodes.
Really enjoyed the dynamics between the main characters, and as the episodes progressed more depth added to their personal history. Interesting stories in each episode, only downside appears to be this is a stand alone series? I wanted more. I also loved The a Killing series, Borgen, a The Bridge, the original Girl who played with fire trilogy and film the Headhunters. Gotta love the Scandic Noir
This is well acted and gripping but unrelentingly harrowing. The final episode is gratuitously upsetting and soured the whole series for me. Have the Nordic people no sense of humour or of what is seemly?
