Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Set in Seattle, The Killing stars Mireille Enos (Big Love) as Sarah Linden, the lead homicide detective investigating the death of Rosie Larsen - a local teenager. The show also explores local politics as it follows politicians connected to the case. As the series unfolds, it becomes clear that there are no accidents; everyone has a secret, and while the characters think they've moved on, their past isn't done with them. This brand-new orginal The Killing novel, follows detective Sarah Linden as she takes on her newest and most challenging case yet. Praise for The Killing: "Strikingly good." - Entertainment Weekly "Soaked in atmosphere and steeped in the stark realism of Scandinavian crime novelists Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson." - Vancouver Sun "Excellent, absorbing and addictive. When each episode ends, you long for the next-a hallmark of great dramas." - Hollywood Reporter
