Killing, The: Season One (2011)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
08.15.11

Killing, The: Season One (2011) Against the dreary, depressing backdrop of rainy Seattle, the police investigate the brutal murder of teenager Rosie Larsen, who was beaten and then locked in the trunk of a car that was sunk into the water. Sarah Linden (Mirielle Enos) is the investigating detective, who is all set to leave the city and get married. But her Captain puts her on the case anyways--and she's sucked into it, much to the detriment of her almost non-existent personal life. She has a thirteen year old son who is getting in trouble and also suspects that her new "partner", Holder, may be a drug addict. There's also the victim's family. Her father used to work for the Russian mob and something's "off" about her mother, Mitch (Michelle Forbes of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, TRUEBLOOD). At first the detectives think that one of Rosie's teachers may be the culprit, but that's a red herring. It may also be her old boyfriend, a spoiled rich kid. Or, as the series progresses, it may even be a local "good guy" politician, Darren Richmond (Bill Campbell of THE 4400) who has a darker side. The thirteen episode first season ends on a big cliffhanger.

I have not seen the original series, so I can't compare it to that. But as a mystery/drama it's engaging and the characters are complex. It sort of reminds me of a more reality grounded TWIN PEAKS, probably because that show centered around a teenager's murder as well.
