Danish shop ordered to stop selling kits to create replicas of Detective Sarah Lund's famous knitwear

It's hardly the kind of case you would dispatch Denmark's most famous TV detective to solve, but Sarah Lund's knitted jumper has taken centre stage in a legal drama all of its own.

A shop in eastern Jutland has been ordered to stop selling knitwear kits to create replicas of the sweater made popular by actress Sofie Gråbøl in The Killing.

The Faroese designers Gudrun & Gudrun, who created the original jumper, claim the shop is profiting from their unique design and have ordered the owner to pay DKR10,000 (around £1,100) in compensation for breach of copyright.

Lawyers from both sides have tried to resolve the case since November, but the shop, Stof og Sy (fabric and sewing), continues to sell the patterns.

Lene Langballe started selling the patterns after the first season of The Killing aired in Denmark. »
