"The Killing" is a US series and not European, however I do agree that over-seas series' are usually far superior. Regards "The Killing," I found it oddly addictive which like most addictions is probably not a good thing. At about four feet tall and 90 lbs soaking wet Ms. Enos is a tough sell for the role she plays. Add to this a simian visage that could turn milk sour as well as the usual saddle of a supposed family life, and all might very well be lost. Enter her side-kick brilliantly played by Swedish actor Joel Kinnaman whose more humane personality and "stretched out rabbit" appearance give the show a little warmth and someone to cheer for. Series One contains one episode entirely devoted to Ms. Enos' son going missing (possibly abducted etc etc). This episode should have hit the circular file!!!

just finished the series on netflix
European shows are so much better than american shows. the characters are totally believable- not so with the 20 y.o. child cops with their perfect hair and makeup running around screaming "fbi- get on the ground!!"
this series was a total roller coaster
hope for the rest of the seasons to be available!!

I have always wanted to watch the original Danish version. Is it not possible to get it for the library?

Great show, but it felt like a tease at the end.

Definitely one of the most compelling shows I have ever seen. The show takes you on a ride and consistently plays with expectations.

I stumbled on this miniseries, patterned after the Danish original, on Netflix and I am absolutely hooked. Mireille Enos' angry/disturbed/wise little bad@$$ character Linden dominates the show, and she (Enos) has excellent chemistry w/her partner, Holder/Joel Kinnaman (a native of Sweden -- unbelievable -- NEVER would've guessed that). The writing, the cast, everything -- top shelf. FIVE STARS.

I was looking for the original Danish series as I'd seen one of the episodes & it was excellent. This is the Hollywood version, it's ok but not as good.

Linden: I'm thinking you can handle the paperwork.
Holder: Oh, so now I'm ok to work alone?
