The Killing (Forbrydelsen)

If you are a fan of Scandinavian Crime Fiction like I am, then i have to recommend the superb Danish tv series Forbrydelsen (The Killing). It's a riveting crime thriller with a  female detective searching for the killer of a teenage girl. It is beautifully acted and the story is moving and handled with great sensitivity. Particularly impressive is Sofie Grabol who plays the Detective Sarah Lund. She has a softness and yet real determination to catch the killer whatever the cost to her personal life. For me, this has been the best television discovery in recent years. It's shown over 20 episodes and keeps you thinking and guessing all the way through. BBC4 are showing double episodes on a Saturday night or it's available on the I-Player. Superb.
