The Killing: Will you Watch it?

AMC just debuted their new show.. The Killing. This new original series is based on a Danish television series Forbrydelsen and tells the story of the murder of a young girl, Rosie Larsen in Seattle.

The show debuted on Sunday April 3 at 9pm with a 2 hour episode.

The Characters

The Killing brings together Mireille Enose (Big Love), Billy Campbell (Once & Again) Joel Kinnaman, (Snabba Cash) , Michelle Forbes (True Blood) and Brent Sexton (W, In the Valley of Elah). Enose is the homicide detective that investigates the young girls death, Campbell is Seattle’s City Council President who’s now running for Mayor. Kinnaman is an ex-narc cop who joins the homicide division for this particular case and Forbes and Larsen play Rosie’s mother and father.

The Show

The show will follow a one day of story time per episode format showing many different perspectives of the characters. In the two hour premiere the dead girl Rosie Larsen is hardly shown alive, except for brief flashes. Viewers don’t even see her body until the end of the first hour. The show seems to take it time to weave a story that keeps you guessing with suspense and the idea that things could change at a moment’s notice.

What do you think about the show? Will you be watching The Killing?
