Ooooo I need to catch up quick
We,re just watching series 1 and I'm loving it! The woman who plays the mother of Nanna has me in tears every episode and we,re only up to episode 7!!!!

RobotLover68 Sat 01-Sep-12 20:35:56

I know fabulous isn't she - the acting of everybody is just amazing

shrinkingnora Sat 01-Sep-12 21:41:54

I am actually really jealous that you get to watch series one for the first time. It really was brilliant.

Bintang Sat 01-Sep-12 21:48:04

Ah Pernille! The actress is marvellous.

LotsofDots Sat 01-Sep-12 22:08:30

Fabulous. Can't wait. Better get knitting... What does the jumper look like for series 3?

Ingles2 Sun 02-Sep-12 11:47:59

Pernille, that's it...
She's fantastic!,..well they all are tbh.
What channel will the Killing be on? (Hopes it's a freeview channel)

Thanks Robotlover

squoosh Mon 03-Sep-12 14:08:12

Ooooooh didn't realise it would be on so soon. Exciting.

Is there any way they could manage to have Troels Hartmann feature in it again? <hopeful>

RobotLover68 Mon 03-Sep-12 14:23:21

Is there any way they could manage to have Troels Hartmann feature in it again?

Yes that would be nice, but probably just wishful thinking sad

GetOrfAKAMrsUsainBolt Mon 03-Sep-12 14:25:19

Nanna Birk Larssen!

Oh god I was obsessed with this obsessed.

Really looking forward to series 3.

lovechoc Mon 03-Sep-12 20:17:57

Cheers for that, will get that in my diary so I don't forget to set it for recording in November!

diddl Mon 03-Sep-12 21:03:31

Wonder if that´ll be after the present run of Montalbano?

I never did see series 1sad

teejwood Mon 03-Sep-12 23:37:41

Did someone mention Pernille?

grin Hello everyone <waves> and thanks Robot for the heads up

diddl you have a couple of months to get hold of the first series before S3 starts, you know you want to smile

In some interviews, they said that S3 would answer some of the loose threads from S1, so I was slightly hoping for the reappearance of a certain politician <cough> but according to his imdb entry it is not to be <sheds tear>

Nevertheless, I guess I'll give it a go wink
<dusts off incident board, checks supplies of markers...>

BTW I do bloody love Montolbano too, but it's a completely different kettle of investigative fish!

RagingDull Mon 03-Sep-12 23:44:08

oooooo goody! im just working my way through the bridge....i taped it. cannot wait for the killing 3.

diddl Tue 04-Sep-12 14:48:13

Just found it online & about to watch ep1!

originalpiratematerial Tue 04-Sep-12 14:49:49

Oh I'm so looking forward to this!

originalpiratematerial Tue 04-Sep-12 14:50:25

teejwood, i love montalbano too, very soothing (and all the lovely blue sky and sunshine is good too)

squoosh Tue 04-Sep-12 15:01:04

<still miss Troels Hartmann>

teejwood Tue 18-Sep-12 09:26:01

<resurrects thread>
<wakes everyone up with a massive fangirl SQUUUUUUUUUEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!>

The first two eps of series 3 have been screened in Copenhagen and they are looking gooooood according to The Guardian

Not sure which quote I like best:
"She, of course, is still running around dark and scary places without bothering to so much as flick a light switch."
"by the end of the second episode..... I was wondering how I could persuade someone to show me the next eight episodes immediately."

grin grin grin

diddl Tue 18-Sep-12 09:51:12

Still working my way through series one & it seems pretty obvious from quite early on who did it.

Wonder if I´m right?

teejwood Tue 18-Sep-12 10:10:32

diddl if you want you can post your theory here and none of us will say anything in terms of yey or nay till you have finished the series smile We were all posting different theories every day week on the original thread!

diddl Tue 18-Sep-12 10:17:55

Well I think it´s Vagn-purely because he keeps asking so much about it.

I just want to scream at him-FFS shut up you insensitive git!

But can´t think of a why.

But then I can´t think of a why for anyone!

teejwood Tue 18-Sep-12 11:49:00

diddl they certainly presented us with enough possible killers throughout the series and we all postulated all kinds of theories on the thread! How far through are you? Whatever ep it is, enjoy the rest of the series <lips firmly sealed>

diddl Tue 18-Sep-12 11:59:40

Not far yet.
7, I think?

Whoever she was meeting seems to be too obvious.

Father-violent bloke-overreacted at something?

Troels-involved somehow or is the politics just to pad the story out-or is it someone connected to him?

I do jump about tbh.

But it was when Vagn kept asking what the police had said-& saying about what he had heard from someone at the school I thought-hmm.

Well, we´ll see.

Could even be someone not known to us yet.

And series 3 not until November-and the last one?

fussychica Tue 18-Sep-12 14:05:07

Great news - love Montalbano too. In fact I get quite excited about anything with subtitles - Borgen, The Bridge, Those who Kill, Engrenage, Wallender. I don't know why other than that it's always such good quality drama.

Housewifefromheaven Tue 18-Sep-12 14:10:35

Is series 1 on repeat anywhere?


diddl Tue 18-Sep-12 14:25:01

If you google "Forbrydelsen"-there are licks to watch it.

That´s what I´m doing atm.

I think it´s called "watchseries"

teejwood Tue 18-Sep-12 14:40:09

diddl series 3 confirmed as the last <weeps>

fussy am partial to subtitled drama myself!

heaven would love beeb to run back to back Killing 1 and 2 in the run up to 3 but don't think that will happen grin

Donkeysdontridebicycles Tue 18-Sep-12 15:53:59

Very pleased to see the 3rd series is on its way, high quality acting and the tension kept going nicely.

squoosh Tue 18-Sep-12 16:23:32

Cannot wait for series 3 to start, didn't read that piece in the Guradian in case it gives too much away. I made that mistake with series 2 envy

I love the ominous theme music it just makes me think 'cool, tall Danes, killing each other and covering it up in ever such an entertaining way'.

Housewifefromheaven Tue 18-Sep-12 20:35:55

Ta did

I am resurrecting my incident board as we speak.
Is it a bit lame to say that this news alone has stopped me being miserable about impending winterdom?

teejwood Wed 19-Sep-12 10:01:54

lula - no yanbu. I feel the same grin

FjordMor Wed 19-Sep-12 20:39:15

Very very excited as will be home with a new baby and loved the first 2! Also excited to find out that a couple of the episodes were filmed in the Norwegian town of Stavanger - where I live! :-) Thank heavens for iPlayer and VPNs!

moreyear Fri 21-Sep-12 03:27:25

I'm watching series one while bfing during the night. The lack of sound is just an added bonus.

diddl Fri 21-Sep-12 06:54:00

Where are you up to, more?

I´ve just watched ep10.

NicholasTeakozy Fri 21-Sep-12 09:25:02

Saturday nights on BBC4 are going to get even better. <Happy sigh>

diddl Sat 22-Sep-12 08:53:47

Well, feeling crappy today-headache, sore throat.

So back to bed with a lovely cup of tea & a "Killing" day!!

moreyear Mon 24-Sep-12 10:39:34

Just watched episode 9 - I have all of season two myskyed but am having to wait for the weekly installments of series one. The wait is so hard (went to say it's killing me :D).

I had considered Vagn but didn't know how the expensive boots would tie in with him...also the aunt (?) is on my radar for some reason.

moreyear Mon 24-Sep-12 10:40:20

Sounds a perfect day diddl.

festereagain Mon 24-Sep-12 11:01:35

My Danish friend told me the first episode was on last night there and the web address is here
She is gloating horribly. It appears to be about a kidnap?
Can't wait..... grin

festereagain Mon 24-Sep-12 11:01:54
diddl Tue 25-Sep-12 20:01:20

Well, that´s me-finally-a fully paid up member of the "I´ve seen Forbrydelsen serie 1"!!

Think I need to watch 2 again now to compare.

and buy a navy anorak/waterproof thingy

NicholasTeakozy Tue 25-Sep-12 20:25:05

Welcome to the club Diddl.

diddl Tue 25-Sep-12 20:57:45


Mewsical Tue 25-Sep-12 22:26:17

Oh it about young child kidnap?? That's me out then.

festereagain Wed 26-Sep-12 13:01:38

I am unsure Mewsical. Perhaps someone with better Danish can come and advise. To me it reads as if they are looking for a missing young girl. Anyone?

festereagain Wed 26-Sep-12 13:03:49

It certainly has a political element in it too though so perhaps this is a subplot. Don't let my dodgy Danish put you off...

carabos Fri 02-Nov-12 21:18:38

Is this happening does anyone know?

CaptainNancy Sun 04-Nov-12 17:22:24

17th november, BBC4

Can't wait to see the new Lund jumper...

NevermarriedDuranduran Sun 04-Nov-12 19:10:49

Just marking my place to join in, DH and I have just ploughed through the boxset of season 1 and 2, we are obsessed. It took us less than a week, we havent slept properly since we started.... its SupErb!!!! Cant believe I missed it when it was first on! Am shouting random danish phrases at the children, as DH retalliates with his best THEIIIS!!! TROELS!!! and PROUST!!! BILAAL!!!
Cant wait for season 3!! Woop Woop!

NevermarriedDuranduran Sun 04-Nov-12 19:11:23

Sorry forgot RAAAABEN!!

HousewifefromBethlehem Thu 15-Nov-12 16:22:12

Bumping this with excitement!

Bring on Saturday!

In the news it said the producers tried to stop her wearing her famous jumpers and wear heels. Sh said no, praise the lord grin

crunchbag Thu 15-Nov-12 16:40:32

Marking my place grin

Wonder how long it will take before we hear 'hvor er Lund?'

HousewifefromBethlehem Thu 15-Nov-12 16:58:52

It's like waiting for the birth of a new kid in this house grin

gingercat12 Fri 16-Nov-12 12:53:30

festereagain OMG! I opened the link and Sara Lund is wearing a shirt with a tie shock

stclemens Fri 16-Nov-12 21:18:56

Just marking my place...

CruCru Sun 18-Nov-12 17:10:12

What did you all think? I have Sky + it so will watch it tonight.

Chandon Tue 20-Nov-12 17:38:46

Oh, I am a bit disappointed.

Disappointed that she missed the train, not like her at all.

And the ending of episode 2 was just crass and stupid (who was the guy anyway?).

The strength of the series was a kind of realism, now it is just a crazy psycho serial killer, so much less interesting.


Did nobody watch yesterday's episodes? Noticed in Primark today that they're selling 'Sarah's' fluffy jumper grin

elportodelgato Sun 25-Nov-12 20:45:40

YES I was watching last night, from behind a cushion mostly. Amazingly gripping telly, bloody love Sarah Lund and her grumpy mum jumpers

Deux Wed 28-Nov-12 23:58:46

I am enjoying this but i keep getting confused and think I'm watching Borgen, then realise it's the Killing.

I think I've watched too much Skandi TV.

I'm hoping the pace will up a bit this week.

franklyidontgiveadamn Sat 01-Dec-12 20:29:18

Hoping the same - so far it's full of holes. Why on earth would juncker run all the way to the building where he saw the light signal and not just radio for someone else to get straight there?

RedcupsforChristmas Sat 01-Dec-12 22:36:22

Ladies, ladies, you are on the wong thread! Come and join us in our jumpers on the "hej och Hilser Velkommen" thread further down!!!

Deux Tue 04-Dec-12 15:58:53

I wondered why there wasn't a Killing thread. That explains it. My Danish is obviously no where near as good as I thought it was. Will need to watch even more Skandi TV now. smile

ThatVikRinA22 Tue 08-Jan-13 21:48:34

ive trawled the boards for this thread....

i had the whole series 3 taped and watched the final one today.


i really wanted her to shoot the bastard.
and then when she did i wish she hadnt. why the sad end.....fuck a duck.
its unlikely they will ever make another series.
so i will never know - happiness was in her reach!! why? why!!!!
