The Killing III

The Killing returns to BBC4 on November 17, for its third and final series.  The BBC’s Media Centre page tells us that Inspector Sarah Lund is back for one last case and that:

Denmark is the midst of a fiercely contested election race, set against the backdrop of the financial crisis.  With 10 days to go to the election, Detective Chief Inspector Sarah Lund prepares to celebrate her 25th year in the police and looks forward to the prospect of a new job in the force. But her relative peace is shattered when unidentified body parts are found at Copenhagen dock only hours before a scheduled visit by the Prime Minister.

The cast includes Sofie Gråbøl as Sarah Lund, Nikolaj Lie Kaas as Mathias Borch and Morten Suurballe as Lennart Brix.

The original TV programme site is here.  Meanwhile, before the short trailer, a word of warning just in case you are looking for clips.  The original site appears to have full episodes in short clips of about 5 minutes and watching these may deliver a spoiler or two.  YouTube has attracted some innovative film makers.  Under the heading ‘Forbrydelsen III’ you will find spoofs and completely non-related entries.

There is also an article in the Radio Times here, talking to the series creator, Søren Sveistrup.

    The show also did an excellent job in growing an entire new cast around Sofie Gråbøl’s Sarah Lund. Given such a compelling central character, it’s not easy for a brand new cast to get on equal footing, but several of the performances here managed just that: Ken Vedsegaard as Raben, Carsten Bjørnlund as Søgaard, Preben Kristensen as Plough and Lotte Andersen as Lund’s boss’s boss Ruth Hedeby all became genuine human presences during the ten episodes.
