Detective Sarah Linden leads the case whilst battling through her own personal drama, but will she truly get to the bottom of the case?
As the series progresses, we learn that Rosie lived a separate life and her parents’ picture perfect marriage is strained.
If you’re looking for TV series like The Killing that are just as intense, Those Who Kill and the Danish version of The Killing are definitely worth a watch.
The US version of The Killing was a remake of the original Danish show that hit our screens in the Nordic noir boom.
This time, Sarah (Lund) is played by Sofie Gråbøl of winter sweater fame, who’s the stand out star of the show. Bolshy Sarah is not prepared to let anything stand in her way of finding out the truth, including the oppressive councillor Troels Hartmann, who gets caught up in the investigation in the midst of his run for mayor.
You’ll need to be a fan of subtitles to watch this show, but we promise that the extra effort will be worth it.
If you’re a fan of Nordic drama, The Bridge will have you gripped to the edge of your seat.
When a body is discovered right in the centre of the bridge between Denmark and Sweden, detectives from each country must come together to solve the crime. Unlikely duo, Saga Norén and Martin Rohde, strike up great rapport as they follow a search that has many surpassing twists and turns.
The team is constantly running against the clock in order to prevent further deaths, but will they succeed?
Another series like The Killing is Those Who Kill. The original Danish TV series first aired in 2011 and we can now watch this US version (as of 2014).
The US version closely follows the original story of Catherine Jensen, a homicide detective who’s just been promoted and is out to impress. Catherine recruits forensic expert, Thomas Schaeffer, to help her solve the many homicides uncovered by her police force. Catherine is also battling a personal case, as she continues to investigate the disappearance of her brother.
The Danish version of the show won rave reviews and we think that the US version deserves a lot of praise, too.
When former NYPD office, Carrie Wells, discovers that she has a rare disorder in which she can visually remember everything, she decides to return to the force to use her talent for the greater good.
As well as getting to grips with her condition and her return to the police force, Carrie must face her ex-partner, played by Dylan Walsh, who just happens to be her boss.
With fast moving plot lines and new crimes to solve on a regular basis, each episode of Unforgettable is fresh and something that you can dip into despite missing the previous episode.
The body of prom queen, Laura Palmer, washes up on a beach in the small town of Twin Peaks. Cue the arrival of eccentric FBI agent Dale Cooper, who uses mystical powers from Tibet as well as first class detective work, to get to the bottom of who killed Laura Palmer.
A great ensemble cast of idiosyncratic characters makes every episode of Twin Peaks a delight. The surreal nature of Twin Peaks may not be to everyone’s taste, but it is a remarkable piece of TV!
If, like me, you were on left on the edge of your seat after every episode of The Killing, you’ll be looking for similar shows that will have you changing your mind about ‘who done it’ and The Bridge is the next best thing.
