gripping but lost focus
15 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The opening and middle episodes of The Killing are excellent. The way the relationship between Linden and Holder slowly thaws is very well acted and convincing. I found that the whole show was based on relationships. How fragile they are,how easily they can be destroyed by hastily made and incorrect assumptions.

The plot slowly simmers meanders along and does complete U turns but keeps you hooked as more and more details are revealed and unravelled. I would have thoroughly enjoyed this show except for the last episode the writers seem to have thought "How do we outdo 24 et al and keep them begging for more" They failed, I just felt let down! What would have been a 9 or 10 Score tumbled to 7.
