A cracking episode, 4 May 2012
9/10

This episode just about has it all, and by this point it felt like the series had really hit its stride.

A cast of strong characters, all very human. Twists and turns, but nothing to break plausibility (as with a few of the earlier episodes / plot twists). There are tense moments, and also real tenderness between Theis and Pernille. It's tightly scripted, with no fat. After this episode my partner and I were completely hooked, and wanted to watch all remaining episodes back-to- back.

More than any murder mystery, The Killing has had us throwing out theories, trying to come up with suspects, and build a case with them. With this episode we probably reached our theorising peak.

disappointing, 29 September 2001
5/10

The first half of the film is pretty good, though some of the characters are a bit flat. From the mid-point on the plot doesn't really hang together, yet goes on longer than it needs to. Haley Joel's excellent, but is the only thing about the film that is.
