The Killing A Soundless Echo S01E04 (AMC)

The Killing title card

The Killing just premiered last night on AMC. It is based on the extremely popular Danish TV series Forbrydelsen. The US adaptation focuses on the murder of a young Seattle girl named Rosie Larsen and its effect on the community and the family. The original show had each episode based on a single day in the police investigation. It looks like the US version will follow the same format.

I just finished watching the two seasons of Forbrydelsen. They were very good and the American version isn’t as good, in my opinion. Still, it’s interesting to see how close they will follow the original.

You still get the Twin Peaks vibe from this show. Once again, Holder continues to be disturbing on screen, messing around with teenagers. It makes you think that he’s a pedophile.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

I hadn’t watched the Danish version, but I just started watching it after I had finished the two first episodes of the US version. I was initially impressed by the US version, but it’s almost a carbon copy of the Danish version. The characters and casting is better in the Danish version.

All in all, I liked the US version, but since I want to find out what’s going to happen next, I have 20 episodes of the Danish version to watch, plus 10 more for the second season which will air on BBC later this fall.

Mireille Enos plays a good detective. I like her way of going about things. I don’t really like Stephen Holder’s character. The way he hits on teens is a bit disturbing. The show reminds me of Twin Peaks, and that’s pretty good for something that is currently airing. Many British fans have commentated on how good the Danish version is and I’m also looking forward to seeing it.
