I'm still reeling from the final episode of the first series of The
Killing. I know this was close to the hearts of manyrats some years ago
and thank goodness I skipped those threads because I didn't have a
televisual device. Not only do I now have one (how different they are
from the last one I had!) but I have Netflix too, and time on my hands, so…
One day before too long I'm going to have to watch it all again because
it's so densely packed with detail I'm sure I missed a lot. Not before
I've paused to get my breath back.
I think I nailed the perp quite early, or maybe I just wanted that to be
the case. The moment when Lund realises she's confronting the perp and
the perp realises that she knows is stunning, one of the best TV moments
ever. Sometime in the small hours of this morning I was lying awake when
the whole Faust thing came together in my head. Sheer brilliance IMHO.
Still too many unanswered questions though. Why the deal with Lund over
dropping the link to Mette Hauge? What are the police covering up? Do we
learn in series 2? Is series 2 going to be an anticlimax after series 1?
In the early episodes I had some trouble distinguishing between Lund and
Pernille. Am I wrong in realising after the final climax that this was
I see a lot of myself in Lund. Don't know if this is a good thing or a
I want a Lund sweater. The chocolate-brown one with the white pattern,
not the white one with the black pattern. If I ask her nicely will her
mum knit me one? Or is there something I don't want to know right now
about Lund's mum?
