The Killing (Season Two)


Seattle is just as cold, dark, and rain-swept this season as it was the last. As if this wasn’t bad enough, almost all the scenes are shot in rooms with almost no lighting, and most of the actors are shot against a window, backlighted. Very stylish, I know. In spite of this, we were involved in it all and looked forward to Sunday. The plot got insanely complicated, with red herrings all over the place, but I guess that’s what makes for a good story. They didn’t cheat us with a “Continued next year!” ending this time. We found out who murdered Rosie Larsen, and it came as a surprise to me. Overall, we enjoyed it, but might have preferred to see it on DVD so we could watch one after the other. That’s my preference, with serial television.
