Chris' Corner: The Killing - imho - Television worth watching

The Killing - imho - Television worth watching

In my humble opinion, AMC has a television masterpiece in its hands with The Killing, their entry into the murder mystery genre.

This show, available in the U.S. and Canada on AMC, follows the murder investigation of Rosie Larsen, the daughter of Mitch and Stanley Larsen, in Seattle, Washington.

The show not only focuses in on the grisly and grim murder investigation but also on the grief suffered by the Larsen family.

The Killing, based on a Danish series Forbrydelsen, stays true to the original, focused on the interconnected worlds of parents, police and politics.

The show is set over thirteen days, with each episode representing the next day in the investigation. The show delves into the flaws and secrets in each of the characters.

Sarah Linden and Joel Kinneman are the detectives...

Al and Peggy, this is a different type of murder mystery... they really look at all sides and develop the plot well, it might be slow for some peoples tastes, but it allows your imagination to paint a much more full canvas of the crime and its effect on people...
