… Thursday 23 Feb at 10pm.
[Information from the Radio Times.]
Watch the trailer here.
[In Danish with no subtitles.]
ITV press release with further information. (With thanks to Ivor in the comments.)
I think I may not even need the subtitles now… and I’m expert in the Danish political system.
When this one hits the screen you’d better look behind you then! This is serial killer territory…
Hi …found this press release from itv re Those Who Kill to be screened on thurs 23rd Feb 2012
Hope you find this helpful
Thanks for the further information Ivor. (I did amend your comment from the 24th to say the 23rd as that is on the press release. I hope that’s ok.)
Would recommend you order the girl with the dragon tattoo , Swedish version, which has a dubbed English option,which this Danish programme does not. I for one have find it impossible to read the subtitles and also watch the action in a fast paced thriller. As a result I only watched the first part
This happened to me the other weekend with Inspector Montalbano when it opened with him in ‘hectic’ mode including dialogue. I managed to catch up with it the following weekend after settling in on a slower episode 2, after which I dipped into epi 1 again, doing a ‘repeat as necessary’ on iplayer. If these things are fast, I agree, dubbing would be better. Thanks for leaving the comment, Roger.
I found sub titles a bit fast at first, seemed that they weren’t in synch with the speed of the filming, but, I got used to them and throughly enjoyed the programme. I would perservere as you do get used to the speed. Shamne you missed the rest of the prog.
Oh I caught it in the end Lynne. After settling into epi 2 on iplayer, I have it another go and stuck with it. Thanks for leaving your comment.
Just watched the first episode and really enjoyed it, we should have more European detective/crime dramas on British tv..Didn’t mind the subtitles, I didn’t even notice them after a while.
Fantastic beginning of this new series. Following on from the equally compelling Borgen, the Danes are becoming the best producer of dramas. There is no extraneous music or stereo typical scriptwriting. The fact that the genius crime solver, a softly spoken academic psychiatric, is treated with envious scorn from the Chief, is another hindrance to the crime solving process. What with pressure from his marriage, and a female boss who has past abuse issues, he and his boss fight against all odds to get their man. I was exhausted by the end and cannot wait for next Thursday.
Jule and Anthony, thanks for leaving your comments. I hope to write about the start of this series on the weekend.
Erm…yeah, watched it last night and it was pretty good but nowhere NEAR in the same league as Forbrydelsen, Wallander, Borgen and Engenages and the aforementioned Montalbano..(is it JUST me or is he the SPITTING IMAGE of the much missed James Richardson from Football Italia..??? !!). Will keep watching it, though…but subtitles ANYDAY…you get used to it and I cannot abide dubbing…you lose SO much…
Agree with you: a totally different type of programme to Forbydelsen and more of the regular type of serial killer fare. I am not familiar with James Richardson or Football Italia sorry…
is itv going to post the episodes of those who kill on itv iplayer i work shifts so missed it. I have checked frequently but nothing yet.
No idea, John, sorry. If I do find out anything I will post.
It’s now up on ITV player, John. 5 days left for epi one at the time of writing here.
I am a big fan of Danish productions and just watched the second episode of Those Who Kill. Loved it, from the grainy camera effects to the forensic / investigative angle, with a twist of personal neuroticism. As I was not impressed by Borgen, I am sure that this series will fully restore my faith in the Danish drama. DVD is due to be released April 2nd. Very interesting to read that Ispettore Montalbano is a bit of a cult. Watching it too but I guess that, since I know well the culture and the books, I remain less taken by the tv version. Thumb up though, it’s good to see Italian, Danish, Swedish works being appreciated as opposed to big bucks American productions.
