I saw the first season complete (i thought there was only one season back then) and three episodes of the second season. But i stopped watching it because i realized this serie is like a horse chasing a carrot in a stick. one week this guy seems to be the murderer and then he isnt't , next week that other guy seems gilty and then he isn't, and on and on and on. At the end it will be me who killed Rosie

YES! My husband and I love it. I think it's easily one of the best shows on television right now. The characters are so real.

It's getting really interesting now that it looks like it might be someone on Richmond's staff.

I do watch it, but a lot of it reminds me of Twin Peaks: young teenage girl in the Pacific Northwest is found murdered, said girl has ties to the worlds oldest profession, and everybody's a suspect.

I love the storyline re: the Indian casino. That's really the only storyline that I can't wait to see how it develops.

It's funny you should say that, the "Who Killed Rosie Larsen" poster and it's similarities to Twin Peaks is what drew me into watching The Killing in the first place Having watched it though, I don't think it is similar at all, The Killing doesn't have any of Twin Peaks' odd humour and kookiness. I love the quality of the writing and acting in The Killing, and it's the only thing that has kept me going through two seasons of "whodunnit?!"

My main theory is that Richardson's right hand man is somehow involved, mostly because I freeze-framed the scene with Rosie being chased in the woods and he looks a LOT like the guy in the hoody...

My theory is that it's the rich guy who owns the house with the pool, friends with Richardson's right hand man the blond dude.

Seriously have a love/hate relationship with this show. It feels so slowwww now, but I can't stop watching because I want to find out who the killer is.

I love this show, but I'm 5 episodes into the 2nd series and am really know further forward with who might have killed Rosie.....although Terri the aunt, is a possibility, but who knows?
I can see the comparisons to Twin Peaks in it's grimness and obviously the storyline, but as Belowen stated this show contains none of the humour/downright bizarreness that made Twin Peaks so compelling.
There are some very interesting characters though, Holder is very ambiguous and Joel Kinnaman plays him perfectly and Mireille Enos is a real find for the central character. Linden is so morose and flawed, but somehow still likable.

The Danish version played in the UK, just before the US version and although I didn't watch it, most folks reckon it is so much better, but I'm enjoying the US version enough right now.

I recently watched the first season of Forbrydelsen with subtitles and I highly recommend it. It's addictive. It settles a dark and cold atmosphere that I can't imagine to be as captivating in an american adaptation. It's also interesting to get an insight into some aspects of the danish culture such as its political system. And you can't resist falling for Lunder's sweater and Troels. I fear the american version would try to make things too black and white and too sentimental. It comes from someone who enjoyed Shameless US and Fincher's Millenium by the way.
Does anyone know, without spoiling anything, if the american investigation differs from the original story? I might give it a try then.

^ Yes, the killer in the US version will be different to who it was in the Danish version.

I am super excited for the finale next week... Looks like I might have been right about one thing

^It looks like your first theory was correct B!!

I was really disappointed in the finale.. It felt like a CSI episode ending. The added twist was VERY surprising though

I was actually really satisfied with the ending... The killer turned out to be one of the few people left that they hadn't done the investigative storyline with so they were one of my theories but I wasn't sure how they were going to play it out...

The acting in this episode was superb, especially Stan & Mitch... Just wow.

I found the finale rather ho-hum, and really excruciatingly slow in the middle. I was expecting more twists and turns in there, it wasn't complicated enough for me (spoilers): I suspected all along that the sister knew exactly what went down and was there, though I didn't think she was the one who did it. I think the biggest twist to me was the mayor losing his morals at the end of the show with the meeting scene. It sort of seems as if they left it open for a possible third season with a new case. Do y'all think there will be one? I agree B the acting on this show is great, right down to the boys who played Rosie's brothers. The guy who played Holder (Joel Kinnaman) is the breakout star in my eyes, he had some really powerful scenes, and was convincing and likeable in the role of Holder.

^I was so surprised with Joel Kinnaman. Especially comparing it to his role in Snabba Cash.. I find it hard to believe it's the same guy
