Sofie Gråbøl, who plays detective Sarah Lund in this original Danish series, went on to appear in just one episode of the American remake titled The Killing: My Lucky Day (2012). Coincidentally, her only scene is opposite her lead role counterpart Mireille Enos (Det. Sarah Linden). See more »
Excellent, Excellent ! Without a doubt a series that captures the true feelings of ordinary people caught up in tragic circumstances.I was amazed to see it on mainstream TV in the UK, a rare pleasure for someone who lived in Denmark for an extended period of time.
The plot and the manner in which it is given to the viewer gives a great insight to life in that country and the way they deal with such events. The characters are vivid and not glamourised, the way they interact is genuine and the flow of the series is very believable.
I have recommended this series to all of my friends, and have heard nothing but praise for it, even though they had never thought to watch a subtitled series before in their lives.
Again : Two Words explain everything about this wonderful series : Excellent, excellent!
