The Killing: Series 1, Volume 1

A.k.a. "Forbrydelsen". Acclaimed as one of the finest murder investigation series ever produced, "The Killing" is a riveting Danish TV thriller that tries to answer the question, 'who killed Nanna Birk Larsen?' The murder of a young girl launches Detective Sarah Lund into an extended police investigation. Lunds plans for a new life in Sweden are put on hold as she can't bring herself to leave the case behind. As the parents of the dead girl's parents and friends struggle to cope with their loss, a link is revealed between city hall and the murder, causing a dilemma for one of Copenhagens mayoral candidates. Over the course of twenty episodes, one for every day of the investigation, Copenhagens secret corruption and power struggles are intriguingly unravelled as the hunt for the killer intensifies and the truth becomes ever harder to find.
