The clocks go forward and the crime is solved
To bed after watching the final episodes of the superb Danish thriller 'The Killing' on the thrice-blessed BBC iPlayer.
With twenty convoluted episodes that gripped all right-thinking viewers – and a uniformly excellent cast headed by Sofie Gråbøl as Detective Sarah Lund – this never failed to provide compelling and compassionate drama. Serial storytelling of the highest quality, in short.
It's been a worthy successor to the Swedish version of Henning Mankell's 'Wallander' (starring the beautifully hang-dog Krister Henrikkson in the title role).
I will miss it.
RIP Nanna Birk Larson.
