It's on tonight! Get your herrings and your jumpers and your tattoo of Troels on show and join me on the sofa for series 3 of The Killing.

Ah, I quite liked that, the ending was kind of transcendent and weird, theatrical language, going up in the clouds. It fitted, for me. Though I suspect the subtitles are very poorly translated, so maybe the tone was a bit different in Danish.

I can see how they were suited.

I think it just seemed improbable her shooting Nielson.

I guess it was a way of ending her career without killing her!

Loved it but the Lund I know and love would never have lost control like that. One sniff of happiness and she's away. There are too many baddies in Denmark, it is a rotten state.

Goodbye my friends and taks. Not watching Borgen as I missed the first series. I miss all things Danish.

I actually thought that she would shoot herself rather than go on the run.

All that-come "back when you´ve cleared your name"-that could only happen with Zeuthan on board, couldn´t it?

I don't think she did lose control. I think she just thought; no one else was going to stop him, and she wanted to do something right for children. So to protect them she shot him. She felt she had been a bad mother to Mark, but he seemed to be coming right. So she just did what had to be done.

Reuthen was initially going to sort it out, but then the director of security (?) made it clear to him that he wanted the compnay, and the money and power that came from it, and wouldn't really do anything to threaten it. Zeuthen isn't even leaving the company as Maja wanted or even having a long holiday, just a weekend away.

Lund was different because she was uncorruptible, so the only one who would do the "right" thing.

I agree mummytime- Reinhardt would never have been brought to justice, not that any punishment atones for what he had done, so Lund took the only action she could to prevent him doing it again. He even said to her that she'd taught him how not to get caught in future. Grim.

I think I like Borgen best, mainly because there's no killing involved! But The Bridge is v close second, because I love Saga! (and the music at the end!)

I found the music to The Bridge a little irritating.

Now that for The Killing really set the series off and enhanced the programmes. You could be engrossed in the action and then the music began to start up adding to the dramatic tension. The closing music at the end: superb.

I've avoided reading any of the messages here in case I read something that will give it away. I've just watched season 1 on Netflix back to back while I've been in my sickbed but Netflix don't have season 2. Does anyone know anywhere online I can find it? I want to watch it tonight (still from my sickbed) and can't find it.

Thanks.
