The Killing Part II

Having recently been slated for a US remake, surely the highest compliment that can be paid to a European TV program, The Killing continues its run of strong ratings and near-universal critical acclaim. 

Part 2 of the gritty Danish 20-part crime series continues on unrelentingly from episode 10ís cliffhanger finale.  Copenhagen detective Sarah Lund and her feisty replacement Jan Meyer are still hunting the killer of schoolgirl Nanna Birk Larssen.  As the search intensifies and the odds of solving the case appear ever slimmer, both Lund and Meyer grow increasingly obsessed with solving the grievous crime which has shaken an entire city. 

The serpentine plot will keep you guessing until the end, and the show undoubtedly deserves the numerous plaudits laden upon it thus far.  Highly addictive, this is must-see television for lovers of murder mysteries, and a drama series of the highest order.  The casting is impeccable, the cinematography superb, the writing dramatic and the performances polished. 

Part 2 offers a satisfying and worthwhile conclusion to this addictive, first-rate series.  Strongly recommended. 

Audio & Video

The Killing- Part 2 features a respectable Danish Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtrack, which manages both the rapid-fire dialogue and the atmospheric score with aplomb.  The transfer is again intentionally bleak, but picture quality itself is sharp and the 16:9 widescreen enhanced transfer is again fine. 

Special Features

As with Part 1, the second instalment of ten episodes doesnít contain anything in the way of bonus content.  With a show this strong, however, viewers are unlikely to be complaining.
