Storyline

On what is supposed to be her last day at work, detective Sarah Linden is called to the scene of a violent crime after a blood-covered woman's sweater is found in a park. There is no body however. The police have also found an ATM card in the name of Stan Larsen. Sarah and her replacement, Stephen Holder, follow-up and when they learn that the Larsen's 17 year-old daughter Rosie did not spend the weekend at a friend's house and has not been seen since Friday night, they suspect the worst. While Rosie's parents Mitch and Stan try to locate her on their own, the police concentrate on searching the park where they eventually discover a car at the bottom of a small lake with the body of a young woman in the trunk. They also learn that the car is registered to the election campaign of city councilman Darren Richmond who is running for mayor. Written by garykmcd

Very intriguing start...
8 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Killing is the 5th show brought to us by AMC... and another success!

Well, to call it a success is probably too early, but if anything the show is going to become another reason to love AMC. The Pilot was very intriguing, and while flawed, it still did a very nice job of representing the characters. This is AMC's first show with a woman lead, and how does she do? Mireille Enos has a captivating glance about her. You can tell so much by looking at her, and tell just how many times she has witnessed events like this unfold in front of her. She has definitely left a mark on me, and now I cannot imagine anyone else in the role. Let's see what else is going to happen...
