    Britain has been going mad (in a quiet way on BBC) for the original Danish version. I shall be very interested to see if the American version comes any way close to this. The female detective, as played by Sophie Grabol (apologies for lack of Danish 'umlauts' - diacritics apparently - see Stuart Jeffries below) is really nothing derivative of other female cops in established dramas. She's truly a new kind of female character - easy to miss because of subtitle stress. Do yourself a favour and rent (if you can) this version. You'll become obsessed, in a good way.

    here's a link to a Guardian article by Jeffries to mark the end of the original version in the UK: http://www.guardian.co.uk/tv-and-radio/2011/mar/31/the-killing-danish-sarah-lund?INTCMP=SRCH

    I am so excited to see this! Not only does it look great and is on AMC but it stars Michelle Forbes whom I will watch in anything (esp. loved her in BSG!).
